Awards and recognition

Itinerant exhibitions (The Hundred Languages of Children and now The Wonder of Learning), exchange with countries abroad intensified and year by year more and more people from all countries came to approach the Reggio educational experience and fostered its international “fame”.

This literally took off in 1991 when a jury of international experts in the prestigious American publication “Newsweek” identified the “Diana” Municipal Preschool (representing the network of municipal infant-toddler centres and preschools) as the most avant-garde school in the world for education in early childhood.

Over the years numerous prizes have been awarded to this experience
