The history of the “Azienda pubblica di Servizi alla Persona OSEA” of Reggio Emilia reflects the evolution of the Italian educational interest towards children and adolescents with family difficulties. It is significantly characterized by an important change of perspective: from a logic of institutionalization and depersonalization to a system based on the child’s care and education. The most important moment in this process was the abandonment of the obsolete orphanages and the foundation of the modern “Villaggio Belvedere” (1962). The book is based on unpublished archival documents and on an extended bibliography.
