Can anyone tell me if there is a current standardized form of penmanship in Italy like the Palmer or D'Nealian methods that we have in the US?

If so, is there anywhere on line that I might be able to see it?

Thank you all in advance for your help and comments.

They are taught very curly handwriting at school, I read somewhere that its based on an eighteenth century style.
A quick search gave me this: http://www.lannaronca.it/schede%20classe%20prima%20p.htm#Schede%20di%20grafia
there's a pdf download for each letter... I'm sure you can find something more concise though...

All the letters in a single file Jan 25, 2009

If you scroll down that page, you can find a file with all the letters in a single page, as cursive script:

While this is the handwriting normally taught at school (and this style has been taught practically unchanged for decades - e.g, it is exactly the same I was taught over 45 years ago) most adults have verify different handwriting. In particular, adults taught before WWII often used a style closer to copperplate handwriting.
