Cultural Change Commission

.

.

.

.

The Commission’s proposal aims at a revision of the main study texts (subsidiaries, history, art and literature manuals) intended for lower and upper secondary schools, so that students of all ages can enjoy an inspiring insight in the history of the world.
 
Italy can boast not only prominent figures in every field  – literary, scientific, artistic, political  – but also absolute excellence in the world: from the first graduates (Bettisia Gozzadini, 1236, jurisprudence; Elena Cornaro Piscopia, 1678, philosophy), to the first chair of experimental physics (Laura Bassi Veratti, 1776), to the pioneer of hygiene Trotula de Ruggiero (11th century).
 
The project is entitled “One Hundred Women Missing in Schoolbooks” and we hope it could be of inspiration among all G20 countries. The event will host a series of cultural change experts and share with all participants more details on the project.
 
The Cultural Change Commission is coordinated by Prof. Fabiana Giacomotti.
