Abstract

This study considers a specific type of urban infrastructures designed to combat inequality and marginality, namely schools and educational facilities dedicated to children and adolescents. The analysis focuses on active school and extracurricular educational initiatives in Milan to give a broader perspective on the growth experience of children and their possible role in the transformation of the city. The aim of the paper is to reflect on some examples of such practices in order to show how the profusion of cultural and voluntary associations, capable of 'interstitial' work of solidarity and also of dialogue with 'street cultures' - either in relation to public policies, or independently, in case of their lack - creates a vast laboratory of place-based and place-sensitive experimentation, fostering the role of the city and its neighbourhoods as an 'educational community' capable of proposing more inclusive models of citizenship.
