The project underlines the role of rural schools in Sicily, from 1923 to 2008, in spreading (perfusing) education for a wider promotion of the culture of citizenship. A lot of rural schools have been closed for economic and social reasons, but they have for years pursued the pivotal and delicate role of bringing knowledge among the children of the farmers, limiting the scholastic dispersion and favouring the processes of social inclusion. Rural schools are civic garrisons to revalue in a prospective of permanent learning through different uses.
