Don Lorenzo Milani (1923 - 1967)

He was much loved and much criticized as a man. He believed that the poor would become poorer without any basic notion of reading and writing. For this reason he started a full-time school in Barbiana, whose main aim was to offer linguistic education to the young. Lorenzo stayed in Barbiana until his death at 44.

considero um homem aquele que domina a sua própria língua
