L'Università popolare was an Italian newspaper founded by Luigi Molinari in 1901[1] and ran until 1918. It was part of the movement for free workers' self-education, partly inspired by Francisco Ferrer's Escuela Moderna (Modern School) in Spain. Workers taught themselves Latin, psychology, physics, and other subjects usually reserved for the ruling class, as part of their self-emancipation, free of dogmatic politics.
