Every place has its own soul, and identity; trying to discover it and establish a relation with it means learning to recognise one’s own soul. Children in Reggio Emilia’s infant-toddler centres and preschools explored the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre while it was a building site, they chose a space they found interesting and designed a work, a gift in harmony and in dialogue with the selected place.
In the exhibition Dialogues with places, children’s experiences and projects become a large workbook.
