Abstract

The "Centres for people's culture" were devised in 1949 by the National Union for the Fight against Illiteracy and worked in the rural areas of southern Italy, that were afflicted with the largest percentage of illiterates in the population. Moreover, the National Union placed in the Centres the ambitious target to provide illiterate with a tool, by which they could educate themselves to have an active and conscious relationship with the social and political life. The Centres for people's culture implemented a "school of democracy" to educate the citizens of the new Italy which was rising after fascist dictatorship and war. The "Centres for people's culture" had a common aspect by virtue of the general organization and ideal framework of the National Union for the Fight against Illiteracy. However, each Centre for people's culture was deeply immersed within its own community and regional environment, so each of them had a life influenced by different historical, cultural, social, and economic peculiarities. This paper faces the case of the Centres for people's culture which worked in Sardinia until 1978, to contribute for knowing better the history of the Centres.
