Abstract

In Italian schools, we often attend meetings of artists with the teacher, especially because in kindergarten and primary schools, the tendency is to assign to a “specialist” the curricular and extra-curricular activities of visual expression, theatre, music, drama and choreography: those activities are considered to be too specific to be taught by a teacher considered a “generalist”. This work offers a reflection on the role and identity of the artist-teacher in Italy today, to identify the critical urgencies, the relationship with institutions, limits and potential. Today, all these issues go beyond a single disciplinary field to address a broader concept of culture and, inevitably, of the human being. Mouving from a reflection on the need to develop more carefully the creative experiences in the formal contexts of our country, this contribution aims to offer a first approach to the roles and identities of the artist-teacher in Italy today, to identify the critical urgency, the relationship with institutions, limits and potential.
