Research to describe the individual and common journey in the direction of new universes of possibility… in the attempt to define the vital effort that can bring together children and adults inside and outside the school. Because I am convinced that only this “attitude of research” is worthy of proposition as an existential and ethical attitude in our world which is so subject to change and fracture, to positive but also dangerous hybrids of race and culture.

Reggio Children, in collaboration with other educational experiences, institutions, government bodies, universities and businesses, both national and international, promotes research projects on childhood, education, and the quality of life and living of children and humanity in general.


Research is a concept that underpins the activity of Reggio Children, through a strategy aimed at generating new ideas, thoughts, and projects closely linked to the contemporary world: research as a way of thinking and of approaching the future. A way of thinking about ourselves in relation to the world and to life that is able to produce the kind of innovation that can only derive from research.
