[Autom. eng. transl.] The contribution starts from the assumption that citizenship, a constantly evolving element, is primarily a question of local knowledge, a presupposition that allows the inhabitants to make use of space as a resource or heritage. The emphasis therefore shifts to territoriality, that is to say the process of construction of the territory that derives from the set of experiences, practices and local knowledge; the progressive impoverishment of spatial experiences produces a more limited active citizenship; at the same time, inclusive capacity is conditioned by the limited active involvement of individuals, particularly in emerging needs. Putting the child in a position to discover his own role in the socio-territorial organization, working on spatiality and on the sense of place are some of the didactic modalities to be privileged in order to actively and consciously insert it in his local community, constituent element of the same citizenship.
