Loris Malaguzzi International Centre

The Loris Malaguzzi Centre, opened in February 2006, is a dedicated meeting place where professional development and research intersect for people in Reggio Emilia, Italy and the world who wish to innovate education and culture.


The Centre is an international place open to all ages, to ideas, different cultures, to hope and imagination. A place of the possible, both necessary and useful for the concept of a city ascribing value to change.


A large space in which research, innovation, and experimentation are carried out on educational content and processes in the different fields of knowledge.

The Centre is located on the site of the former Locatelli warehouses, purchased in 1998 by the Municipality of Reggio Emilia and destined to become the catalyst and symbol of the transformation of the city’s northside.


A place of the possible, both necessary and useful to the city and the changing neighborhood. A place that keeps the central focus on children and their potentials, that aims to offer opportunities for creativity to children, youth, and families, and new opportunities to the international educational community and to all those who embrace and pursue learning and innovation.


The development of the Malaguzzi Centre is promoted jointly by Reggio Children, Reggio Children – Centro Loris Malaguzzi Foundation and the Istituzione of the Municipal Infant-toddler Centers and Preschools of Reggio Emilia.


The Loris Malaguzzi International Centre houses the Ateliers, the Marco Gerra exhibition hall, the Documentation and Educational Research Centre of the Municipal Infant-toddler Centres and Preschools of Reggio Emilia, the Annamaria and Marco Gerra Auditorium, the spaces dedicated to food at Pause – Atelier of Tastes – cafeteria, restaurant –  and Reggio Children Bookshop.


The Loris Malaguzzi International Centre is open to visitors daily, Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
