Messages of the Monumentals (Maria Laura Marescalchi)

A way to be familiar with the place one lives in is to visit monuments, museums and memorials. But one has to be aware that usually they speak more of the present than of the past they are supposed to illustrate. The school should enable students to read in a critical way the messages of monuments, museums and memorials, also interpreting their silences.
