MATURITY 2022 BETWEEN THE PASCOLI, VERGA, SEGRE AND PARISI STYLES
After two years of only oral state exams, the written tests are back to 2022 maturity. For the first test in Italian, the same in all of Italy, the Ministry of Education proposed traces of Giovanni Pascoli and Giovanni Verga to the analysis section of the literary text. For the argumentative text, on the other hand, a passage about racelove was selected, taken from the book ‘The only guilt of being born’, written by Gherardo Colombo and Liliana Segre, and a text taken from ‘Musicofilia’ by Oliver Sacks, about the importance of music as the glue of society. The third type B proposal is instead the speech given to the Chamber of Deputies by the Nobel Prize in Physics Giorgio Parisi, to shake up politics on the issue of climate change. For Type C, a text taken from ‘Why a Constitution of the Earth’, by Luigi Ferrajoli, on the pandemic and its economic and social effects, and an excerpt from the book by Vera Gheno and Bruno Mastroianni, on the network and its risks, which was the track the students chose the most. Outside the gates, joy and emotion for the students, happy to have sealed an important passage in their lives with graduation. But many admit that again this year they would have preferred only an oral exam: still too many gaps after two years after the pandemic. After the second written test, prepared by each department, students must finally take the oral test, which begins with an analysis of a material selected by the Commission.
