Creativity, like knowledge, springs from a sense of awe
Loris Malaguzzi, 1984

 

A visit to the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre in Reggio Emilia is scheduled for publishers, writers, illustrators, sector operators and the general public as part of the new partnership between the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and Reggio Children.

 

Visitors will be given an insight into the creative approach to learning and the hundred languages theory at the basis of the Reggio Emilia centre’s education philosophy for infants, toddlers and preschool children, today a major reference point on the national and international education scene.

 

Inaugurated by the city of Reggio Emilia in February 2006, the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre brings together operators from Italy and elsewhere committed to innovative educational and cultural approaches. Designed as a public place for all ages, the centre welcomes people of all cultures eager to exchange ideas and experience in the field of education.

 

The day visit for children’s publishers will start with a brief seminar to present the Reggio Children educational philosophy. This will be followed by workshops, and conclude with a visit to the exhibitions and activities of the international centre. After that, visitors will be free to have a meal in the area dedicated to the innovative Food and Taste project (“Pause – Atelier of Tastes”), that grew out of experience in the in-house kitchens of local infant and toddler centres and preschools.

 

One of the most original features of the Reggio educational approach is to consider a vast range of expressive languages – visual, musical, pictorial, body, plastic etc. – and the aesthetic dimension as key elements of our lives through which we, as members of the human species, access learning throughout life.

The Atelier is a place that weaves together the diverse aspects – cognitive, emotional, expressive and rational – involved in knowledge and learning. Here, the different expressive languages, along with the aesthetic dimension, form the basis for all the projects and initiatives developed. It is an approach that triggers intense interest, curiosity and wonder in the things around us, as well as a collective problem-solving spirit.

  

Reggio Children is also an independent publishing house producing volumes on a range of child-learning projects and research that also include the child’s perspective. We will be at the 2018 edition of The Bologna Children’s Book Fair in the NEW ENTRY LOUNGE.

 

Reggio Children publications are published directly by Reggio Children and by about 50 publisher-partners in Italy and elsewhere in 22 languages: Italian, Albanian, Arabic, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish and Traditional Chinese.
