About this ebook

Quello del 1946 fu il primo corso di formazione tenuto in Europa da Maria Montessori, dopo il suo lungo esilio in India durante la Seconda guerra mondiale.
Lezioni da Londra 1946 raccoglie le lezioni, appunto, tenute a Londra sei anni prima della sua morte, in cui la famosa pedagogista parla con la saggezza di chi ha trascorso una vita a studiare non solo la prima infanzia, ma l’intero sviluppo dell’essere umano.
Queste conferenze rappresentano una pietra miliare nel mondo della pedagogia, essendo diventate le basi dei corsi 3-6 dell’AMI, l’Association Montessori Internationale.

Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian educator and physician. Born in Chiaravalle, she came from a prominent, well-educated family of scientists and government officials. Raised in Florence and Rome, Montessori excelled in school from a young age, graduating from technical school in 1886. In 1890, she completed her degree in physics and mathematics, yet decided to pursue medicine rather than a career in engineering. At the University of Rome, she overcame prejudice from the predominately male faculty and student body, winning academic prizes and focusing her studies on pediatric medicine and psychiatry. She graduated in 1896 as a doctor in medicine and began working with mentally disabled children, for whom she also became a prominent public advocate. In 1901, she left her private practice to reenroll at the University of Rome for a degree in philosophy, dedicating herself to the study of scientific pedagogy and lecturing on the topic from 1904 to 1908. In 1906, she opened her Casa dei Bambini, a school for children from low-income families. As word of her endeavor spread, schools using the Montessori educational method began opening around the world. In the United States, the publication of The Montessori Method (1912) in English and her 1913 lecture tour fostered a rapid increase of Montessori schools in the country. For her groundbreaking status as one of Italy’s first female public intellectuals and her role in developing a more individualized, psychologically informed approach to education, Maria Montessori continues to be recognized as one of the twentieth century’s most influential figures.
