Abstract/Notes: Il contributo ha un taglio storico con attenzione all’attualità e si occupa della pedagogia montessoriana, che è recentemente al centro di un dibattito vivace in Italia e di nuove sperimentazioni. Esso vuole mostrare il notevole valore etico e sociale presente nella proposta di Maria Montessori: un valore che attualmente è un po’ trascurato a livello divulgativo, perché la concezione montessoriana viene ridotta in alcuni casi a un metodo didattico (arredi a misura di bambino, materiali scientifici, maestra unica). Per questo motivo, l’autrice del contributo analizza il Discorso inaugurale in occasione dell’apertura di una Casa dei bambini nel 1907, scritto e pronunciato da Maria Montessori, focalizzandosi su alcuni temi. Il primo tema è quello degli spazi: il Discorso mette in luce come Montessori pensava al valore simbolico e sociale delle Case dei bambini e alla loro importanza per il recupero di situazioni di degrado e di miseria. Il secondo tema è quello del profilo professionale della maestra: le parole di Montessori mostrano come l’insegnante ha una importante funzione sociale ed è la persona che cresce i futuri cittadini favorendone la consapevolezza critica attraverso una relazione fondata sull’autonomia. Una rilettura dell’opera montessoriana in questa luce ci sprona anche a rivedere le proposte di altri pensatori della nostra storia culturale non come metodi didattici, pur innovativi e interessanti, ma anche e soprattutto nel loro messaggio sociale. Questa prospettiva appare sempre più urgente e doverosa in un’epoca come la nostra, che si trova ad affrontare problemi molto gravi riguardo alle condizioni dell’infanzia. [The contribution has a historical focus with attention to current affairs and deals with Montessori education, which has recently been at the centre of a lively debate in Italy and new experiments. It wants to show the remarkable ethical and social value present in the proposal of Maria Montessori: a value that is currently somewhat neglected at the level of popularization because the Montessori concept is reduced in some cases to an educational method (child-friendly furnishings, materials and methods, single teacher). For this reason, the author of the contribution analyzes the inaugural speech on the occasion of the opening of a Children's Home in 1907, written and pronounced by Maria Montessori, focusing on some themes. The first theme is that of spaces: the Discourse highlights how Montessori thought of the symbolic and social value of the homes of children and their importance for the recovery of situations of degradation and misery. The second theme is that of the professional profile of the teacher: the words of Montessori show how the teacher has an important social function and is the person who grows future citizens, encouraging critical awareness through a relationship based on autonomy. A reinterpretation of the Montessori work in this light also encourages us to review the proposals of other authors of our cultural history not as educational methods, although innovative and interesting, but also and above all in their social message. This perspective appears ever more urgent and necessary in our age, which is facing very serious problems concerning the conditions of childhood.]

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori was an educator who developed the method of teaching children which was named after her. Initially, she worked with mentally retarded children. She made a large number of exercises, sensor materials, causing the children's interest in learning. Later, her textbooks and toys began to spread around the world. The main idea of this teaching method is the personal development of a child. This system improves the child's abilities, increases self-sufficiency, as well as its comprehensive development in accordance with the physiological capabilities. Such approach in education, naturally has a positive effect on the health and education of the child. The value and significance of the Montessori Method has been described in details in the works of foreign scientists. Famous Russian researchers were also interested in this system. The relevance of this study lies in the fact that the methods of education of children is widespread in educational system of Republic of Tatarstan in Russia. Every year a lot of institutions, childcare centers are appearing, which work on the Montessori method. Here we can say about preschool educational institutions. The number of parents who wants to give their child in such kindergarten is increasing every year. The basic principle of education is to play with toys. These researchers examined the application of some of the precepts of Maria Montessori in the family and nursery school. The experimentation was held with preschool children aged 3-5 years in a kindergarten. The application of precepts and principles of education of this technique in a separate modern family was also reviewed. The authors of the research work carried out diagnosis and detailed analysis of the results. This technique is quite interesting and at the same time unique. Children raised in a Montessori environment are very confident, can solve everyday problems. Many of the exercises are aimed to develop fine motor skills. However, the emotional sphere remains untouched. Therefore, it is desirable for modern teachers to add their own methods for the full development of the child. In modern society, this method is very important. The main advantage of education is to reveal the personal qualities and talents of the child. Children become obedient, disciplined.
