Abstract/Notes: Formerly entitled The Montessori Method: Scientific Pedagogy as Applied to Child Education in the Children's Houses. This book was first published in 1909 under the title 'Il Metodo della Pedagogia Scientifica Applicato all'Educazione Infantile nelle Case dei Bambini' ('The Montessori Method: Scientific Pedagogy as Applied to Child Education in the Children's Houses) and was revised in 1913, 1926, and 1935. Maria Montessori revised and reissued this book in 1948 and renamed it 'La Scoperta del Bambino'. This edition is based on the 6th Italian edition of 'La Scoperta del Bambino' published by the Italian publisher Garzanti, Milan, Italy in 1962. M. J. Costelloe, S. J. translated this Italian version into the English language in 1967 for Fides Publishers, Inc. In 2016 Fred Kelpin edited this version and added many footnotes. He incorporated new illustrations based on AMI-blueprints of the materials currently in use.

Abstract/Notes: This contribution aims to investigate and reconstruct - analysing the issues of the magazine “La Coltura Popolare” - the important role played by the Società Umanitaria in the spread of outdoor education as a children’s right, during a very lively and pedagogically significant period of the Milanese history. The paper will be concentrated on two main focuses: the first is the promotion of open-air schools, with the accurate reflection and systematization of the main Italian and European examples as hosted in the pages of the aforementioned journal; the latter is the Società Umanitaria’s commitment to disseminating the Montessori method as an approach that underlines the value of outdoor education. As can be seen through the numerous excerpts from the journal articles proposed here, the debate on outdoor education at the beginning of the Twentieth century, with its precious heritage of insights and sometimes pioneering practices, offers a valuable reference for gaining a deeper awareness of outdoor education as it is conceived and practiced today. / Questo contributo si propone di indagare e ricostruire - analizzando i numeri della rivista "La Coltura Popolare" - l'importante ruolo svolto dalla Società Umanitaria nella diffusione dell'educazione all'aperto come diritto dei bambini, in un periodo molto vivace e pedagogicamente significativo della storia milanese. L’articolo si concentra su due focus principali: il primo è la promozione delle scuole all'aperto, con l'accurata riflessione e sistematizzazione dei principali esempi italiani ed europei accolta nelle pagine della citata rivista; il secondo è l'impegno della Società Umanitaria nella diffusione del metodo Montessori come approccio che mette in particolare rilievo il valore dell'outdoor education. Come si evince dai numerosi stralci di articoli qui proposti, il dibattito sull'edu-cazione all’aperto di inizio Novecento, con il suo prezioso patrimonio di intuizioni e pratiche talvolta pionieristiche, offre un valido riferimento a chi intenda porsi con maggiore consapevolezza nei confronti dell'outdoor education così come viene concepita e praticata oggi.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s work discussed in the chapter, The Child, Society and The World – Unpublished Speeches and Writings, is based on her original speeches between 1930 and 1950. The writings cover a wide range of topics organized into six sections. Two sections speak directly to parents and teachers, urging them to respect children’s interests and occupations which allows them to build concentration and develop self-discipline. Another section considers diverse topics including social education, religious education, fantasy and fairy tales, and Montessori’s lesson on silence. The last section of the chapter outlines Montessori’s ultimate pedagogical aim: a new and better world achieved through the child based on what Montessori describes as cosmic education.
