The essay aims to define homeschooling by investigating the phenomenon and its followers in Italy. Through the analysis of data and the comparison with the United States, this work builds a typology of homeschooler parents centered on the motivations that led them to try this practice. Homeschooling is not just an educational practice but involves many other aspects of the lives of parents and children. The work tries to define the different ideas that animate this small but determined group of people.
