The Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) has recently remarked the importance of basic quantum physics in the scientific high school (30% of the 5th-year syllabus) but, due to limited learning time and intrinsic difficulty, this branch of physics is neither assimilated nor appreciated as it should. We illustrate six didactic suggestions focused on learning motivation, emerged during a 17-year-long teaching experience, which could help to tackle the main problems found.
