[Autom. eng. transl.] It is now recognized by all that motor practice is one of the most effective tools for personality formation, knowledge and awareness of one's own body identity. In addition to the countless studies in the scientific field that highlight the conditional and coordinative benefits for subjects in the developmental age, there are as many that demonstrate how motor activity is decisive for character formation, personal care and well-being, the development and maintenance of a correct psycho-physical balance, with the consequent improvement in the quality of life and a positive attitude to social inclusion. To operate in accordance with these considerations and to give a concrete answer to the needs that continue to emerge from society and the world of education, the Regional School Direction and the Lombardy Region intend to promote support initiatives for the 2009-2010 school year primary schools so that their Executives and Teachers can design and implement projects aimed at improving the quality and quantity of physical and sports education. The motor education thus supported becomes an opportunity to promote cognitive, social, cultural and affective experiences such as to induce the child to understand, serenely accept and reflect on the morpho-functional changes that characterize the process of growth, maturation and development. Through the multiple expressions of movement activities ranging from facial expression to the most varied sports performances, each student will be able to explore space, learn about his body, communicate and relate to others. Learning new motor skills and being able to experience the success of one's actions are a source of gratification that stimulate the pupil's self-esteem and the progressive expansion of his experience. Especially in game and sports-game situations where victory or defeat is experienced, the recreational-motor-sports activity helps the child to control and manage his emotions. Lastly, it is emphasized that participating in motor and sports activities means sharing group experiences with other people, even of different cultures, as well as recreating effective situations of integration of disabled students that enhance the value of cooperation and teamwork.
