The thesis investigates the teaching of classical languages in secondary schools in Italy and Spain and its relationship with the development of citizenship and metacognitive competences. The aim of this study is to find out what are the perceptions of Italian and Spanish students and teachers on the learning and teaching of Latin and Greek according to the didactics of competences. A multiple case study with a mixed research design was used, with 173 students and 25 Spanish and Italian teachers as participants in the quantitative phase and 40 students and 18 teachers of the same nationalities in the qualitative phase. The results highlight the importance of working on the learning concepts of Classics students and teaching that helps students to develop key competences (assessment, feedback, teacher personality, interactivity and discipline). Useful avenues for teaching and new perspectives for future research in this field are offered.
