About one month after the major May-earthquake we interviewed six headmasters of schools, which had been very badly affected. They were either hosted at some other schools’ offices, or they had been already supplied with a modular office near their damaged school. We let them talk freely about their situation, worries and hopes. We directed the interviews just in their final part, as we wanted to find out how they felt about being actively involved in their schools’ reconstruction.

We wanted to find out if ‘participation to reconstruction’ was a priority to them and the way they understood it. It turned out that ‘participation’ was primarily intended as ‘being promptly communicated what is going to happen’ by governmental agencies, rather than owning active participation to the decision-making process, together with their teachers, pupils and school’s community. Interviews to schools of Emilia Romagna
