Purism, classicism and illuminism in the language teaching of Basilio Puoti. This paper draws attention to the principles and teaching methods of the famous Italian language school founded in Naples in 1825 by Basilio Puoti. Despite the similarities between “Puotismo” with the archaic, regulatory guidelines of the nineteenth-century purism leader, Antonio Cesari, re-reading Puoti’s works and the testimonies left by his students bring out the relevance of the hallmarks of his teaching: civil ethics, derived from the Enlightenment, and a Classical orientation. Focused on dialogue and group work, the broadening of the canon of writers to propose to students (not only authors of literary texts, but scientists, historians, philosophers, jurists) and the care given to the teaching of writing to practice expressive clarity and effectiveness – due to the indissoluble relationship between speech and thought – make Puoti an author to go back to, reflect on and discuss.
