italy_flag.gifIn Italy national curricula are defined as “Indicazioni Nazionali” - these give goals 
that schools have to reach, deciding independently the way to. However, the number of hours devoted to maths is fixed at a national level, with a limited flexibility. Some autonomous region (e.g. SüdTirol) has its own “Indicazioni”.

 

These are the links to the official documents; all of them are in Italian and contain all the disciplines.

 

“Scuola dell'infanzia” (pre-primary school):

“Primo ciclo d'istruzione” (from grade 1 to grade 8)

Italian first cycle is organized in a common path for all children.

It is divided vertically in Primary school and First grade Secondary school.

First grade secondary school (from grade 6 to grade 8):

The goal at the end of the first cycle are summarized in the “Profilo finale dello studente”:

These curricula were detailed in a later official document called “Indicazioni per il curricolo”:

Since there is some incoherence between the two documents, an harmonization is waited for.

 

“Secondo ciclo d'istruzione” (from grade 9 to grade 13)

Italian second cycle is divided horizontally into “Sistema dei Licei” and “Istruzione Tecnica e Professionale”.

Curricula (and in particular maths curricula) can be found at the following links:
