Abstract

This essay proposes a preliminary investigation of the control measures that the fascist government in Italy and, just after the Liberation, the Allied Military Government Education Sub-commission took upon over the educative tools employed for the teaching and the study of the English language in secondary schools. The authors and editors reacted differently: some followed the Ministry’s provision and published an emended edition, others decided to interrupt the publication of the book. This study focuses on a selection of English schoolbooks that underwent the pre- and post-fascist control. The anthology Letture inglesi by Guido Fornelli, which was not republished despite the very limited number of pages censored by the Commission, and Achille Sardo’s Cento lezioni pratiche di inglese, which survived to both censorships.
