COVID-19 unforeseen drama generated in schools another unforeseen fact, the awakening of awareness and free and spontaneous initiative of people that got involved and discovered again and re-interpreted educative relationship. A way to face emergency that generated new experiences of meeting also at distance, new trails of educational research, new theachers and head theachers initiatives aimed at building formative opportunities, involving families in new ways of educative alliances. All this happens without neglecting to recognize the fatigue in involving students lacking of connecting instruments and those with learning or social problems, without neglecting also difficulties in re-thinking didactics and schools bewilderment in dealing with rules sometimes unclear. A general rehersal that revealed, as has happened never before, how school autonomy is a resource and an instrument suitable to support protagonism of individuals, that has to be sustained and enhanced not only in the perspective of the start of the new school year but also as occasion of renewal of public school system: state schools and state recognized schools.
