[Autom. eng. transl.] The Italian school, in recent decades, has been crossed by profound and marked transformations, including the continuous increase in the number of students with non-Italian citizenship, coming from different parts of the world. The reality of Brescia is not exempt from these changes, it is indeed well representative since, since always, it ranks among the first provinces for the attractiveness of immigrants and, obviously, also for families and children of school age. Thus we are witnessing a very complex multicultural school scenario which, although presenting some trends (uneven distribution in the provincial territory, channeling in some secondary school courses, differences in school performance between Italian and foreign students, for example) is not always so obvious but , indeed, in continuous evolution. The paper aims to be an element of continuity with previous reports, proposing to shed light on this situation in the 2014/15 training year, providing a general picture of the characteristics of the presence of foreign students in the Brescia scenario. In particular, the following aspects are intended to be explored: • The size of the foreign presence in Brescia schools. We want to provide the numbers of students with non-Italian citizenship, their incidence with respect to the total number of students, in every order and grade of school, their distribution in the different secondary school addresses (including vocational training), as well as the their origin. • Foreigners in Brescia universities. Some data on the presence of foreign students at the university are taken into consideration (registered and enrolled), comparing their distribution and impact on the single university and study area chosen. • The school results of foreign students. Data on learning, in Italian and Mathematics, are provided in some school levels. To investigate the phenomenon, we will use the data provided by the Ministry of Education and its National Student Registry (about the numerical extent of the foreign presence in schools and universities) and by Invalsi through the annual standardized disclosure of learning (in this regard to school results). The analyzes will not only take into account the 2014/15 situation in Brescia but will try to show the overall evolution over time, providing comparisons between Italian students and foreign students, placing this phenomenon in the Lombard and Italian context, sometimes with timely comparisons with the neighboring provinces .
