“Il Tempo e la Storia”. Un libro, un luogo e un film per la Pedagogia Speciale
Starting from some suggestions of the television program “Il Tempo e la Storia”, broadcasted by RAI, the author identifies a book, a place and a movie as emblematic elements characterizing the Special Pedagogy. In continuity with previous personal and other scholars’ (Gatto, Canevaro, Trisciuzzi, Crispiani, De Anna, Goussot, d’Alonzo, Pavone, Mura, Galanti, Zappaterra and others’) papers,
the author in this article tries to highlight some typical historical events of the education of disabled people, who seldom are included in the History of Education and Pedagogy. In particular, also here emerges what seems to be a peculiarity of Special Pedagogy, that is, bringing out issues related to the education of all (starting from the most vulnerable ones) but often not immediately visible to all (and among these, even those should be insiders).
