Historical heritage

Established in Florence in 1925 as a National Educational Exhibition and later becoming the National Schools Museum (1941), Indire today preserves an important bibliographic-documentary heritage of historical-pedagogical interest.

This consists of around 95,000 documents and 14,000 photographs relating to the history of Italian schools. In addition to a rich bibliographic fund (over 80,000 volumes) which derives from the National Pedagogical Library, historically important place for the training and updating of teachers.

Starting from what has been preserved, the working group for the historical heritage, with the help of the Indire Communication Office, in addition to carrying out a preparatory archival and bibliographic work of inventorying, cataloguing and digitizing of the materials, has developed, and continues to develop, various valorisation and dissemination activities through analogue and digital channels, as well as undertaking laboratory interdisciplinary historiographical and educational research on the use of cultural heritage.
