The Veil at School in Italy and in France

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article focuses on the freedom for female students from the islamic tradition to attend public schools wearing a veil in Italy and in France. Italy and France have come up with contrasting solutions in this regard. This article highlights that underlying these solutions are two different legal-official interpretations of the meaning of the veil and in general of religious signs and symbols in the school environment in connection with the adoption or otherwise of an intercultural pedagogy.
