SAVE THE DATE Conference If the eye leaps over the wall. Researching new paradigms for education, Reggio Emilia, 20-21 February 2020






For the centenary of Loris Malaguzzi’s birth, a conference that takes its starting point as the experience of Reggio Emilia’s infant-toddler centres and preschools, with the proposition of encompassing issues at the centre of debate, discussion and reflection today; debate and discussion that transcend the terms of childhood’s situation and instead impact human beings, relationships, women, formative experience, inter-personal relations, culture, and gender culture. (Loris Malaguzzi, inauguration of the exhibition If the Eye Jumps over the Wall, 1981)

If the eye leaps over the wall was the title of the first exhibition of Reggio Emilia’s experience of education, inaugurated in Reggio Emilia in 1981



Thursday 20 February, 2am-7pm - Plenary session, R. Valli Municipal Theatre

Friday 21 February, 9am- 7pm - Thematic seminars in various venues

The Conference wishes to offer an occasion for continuing to shape the future of Reggio Emilia’s experience of infant-toddler centres and preschools, using the thinking of Loris Malaguzzi and those who worked with him as a starting point, for all those who want to create new and different schools.

International and Italian speakers will be participating to contribute to reflection on various areas of knowledge.

The conference is part of a national and international initiative No way. the Hundred is There for the centenary of the birth of Loris Malaguzzi.
