Dialogues with Places


The suggestion for this project came from another project in the city entitled “An Invitation to…” in which five important artists created contemporary works of art in five different places around the city.


Children and teachers in Reggio infant-toddler centres and preschools explored the International Centre while work was still partially underway choosing areas of the Centre interesting to them and designing a work/a gift conceived in empathy and dialogue with the chosen places. They respected the place’s identity while intervening on it and causing it to modify.


The children’s journey sets in motion many processes; creative, sympathetic, cognitive and draws these into a design/project approach which tends to oppose widespread attitudes of dis-engagement and indifference in the same way that it tends to refuse passive and uncritical acceptance of poor quality environments.


It is our hope that an approach which is sensitive to surroundings can be a positive element for participation, for solidarity and awareness towards others and the environment.





The catalogue of the exhibition, in Italian and English, is published by Reggio Children.
