Summary/Abstract: The change in structures of Romanian primary school produced by the inclusion of preparatory grade within this educational level, determined curricular changes especially for the cycle of fundamental acquisitions. The new curricular products form the reference materials for the present analysis on the place and the role of aesthetics in Romanian primary education. Although international programmatic documents describe a personality profile for which the aesthetic dimension is relevant in the context of integrated education of the autonomous and creative citizen, national curricular structures do not cover appropriately this aim. It is also the case of Romanian curriculum for primary education (cycle of fundamental acquisitions) which isolates the aesthetic dimensions in two curricular structures: music and movement, respectively, visual arts and practical abilities. Although other curricular areas/disciplines avoid the aesthetic dimension, the two integrated structures previously mentioned indicate a more visible concern among decision-makers and practitioners for innovative revaluation of contemporary tendencies to include aesthetic education in all curricular structures (including mathematics and sciences).
