Within the main research project In intellectu et in sensu that promotes the handwriting practice to achieve handwriting competences in formal education contexts, In interior puero research aims to define relationships between writing and the development of autonomy in interpreting iconic messages for pupils of primary school. The methodological design, as it has been defined by Emma Nardi who was responsible for this part of the project In intellectu et in sensu, combines a quasi-experimental approach for the core activity and qualitative methods to collect information on independent variables. Pupils from primary school, involved in the quasi-experimental activity, were asked to daily write a text of five lines about small parts of a Vatican Museums’ painting for 51 days. When at the end of their experience, pupils demonstrated an improvement of observation and interpretations skills. From the museum perspective, the research project contributes to develop a framework for designing education activities to enhance the development of cross competencies in formal education contexts.

Keywords: Handwriting; museum education; cultural mediation; cross-competencies; interpretation capacity.
