A “counter-school” of Rome’s Sessantotto (the 1968 movement). The volume retraces the pedagogical experience of the “Scuola 725” (1968-1973), launched in Rome in the shantytown of Acquedotto Felice by Father Roberto Sardelli, a prominent figure of Italy’s dissident Catholics movement of the 1960s and 1970s. In the light of existing studies as well as the analysis of archival and journalistic sources  – both published and unpublished – the book provides an overview of the story of the “Scuola 725”: i.e. the role it played in forming the critical and democratic consciousness of the shantytown’s youth; the main features and goals of its cultural and educational initiatives; its involvement in the struggles for the right to housing and for the universalization and actual fulfillment of social rights more broadly, as well as for the respect of human dignity. The volume also offers documents and first-hand accounts that allow the reader to delve deeper into Roberto Sardelli’s thought, and help present more effectively the ethic content and the activities of the “Scuola 725”
