Comunicare la Storia Naturale dell’Uomo: ombre e luci

This paper endeavors to explain what the issues are in understanding human evolution, mainly focusing on the teaching of Italian scholarship. What languages are more suitable to teach it? What topics should be chosen for it? Can pupils under 12 understand human evolution? All of the answers come out from the lectures of the Human Evolution and Biodiversity – Communicating Human Natural History congress held in Florence last September 2008.
