[Autom. eng. transl.] In our primary schools there is little physical education and this is a well-known fact that emerges from public opinion, from the sports world, from the professional associations of teachers of physical education and from the school system itself. The reasons for this situation can be traced back to the lack of environments and sports facilities in the area and accessible during school hours and also to the lack of preparation and skills on the movement by the teachers. But allow me to add to these what I believe to be the most decisive cause or the widespread lack of "motor culture" in school managers, teachers and parents probably still convinced that motor education is not entirely indispensable and serves as a discharge or recreation. Today we can prove that it is not so; from neurosciences and other scientific contexts come indications and suggestions all oriented to the enhancement of motor activities in the period 6-11 years.
