Music Education, Legality and Social Inclusion in Italy

The rising of foreign children who arrive in Italy, requires research and realization of host locations, aimed at guaranteeing rights such as: the protection, education, housing and education. This as required by the International Convention on the rights of the child of 1989, ratified by the Italian Government in 1991 and subsequently saw its application in the national context, through applicative regional laws. This presence may pose a problem to be solved with appropriate tools, but is an huge opportunity to experience and further implement social inclusion mechanisms. Music is one of the distinctive aspects of being human and can be a bridge to connect people and culture, arts and humanities. Music education can encourage journeying together towards transformative musical experiences. Creating opportunities for active music participation means finding ways to increase accessible pathways that lead toward meaningful musical engagement. Music education is a way for social Inclusion: the research wants to investigate the emphases the importance of making connections among people, across issues, and over time. By encouraging expansive and ongoing frameworks for interaction the research seeks to create engaged populations and communities of practice and the differences can only take place in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment.
