One City, Many Children - Reggio Emilia, a History of the Present
One City, Many Children recounts the story of the birth and development of Reggio Emilia's early years services, the nido and cuola d'infanzia, a research project bringing together the voices and thoughts of many 'protagonists' and which refers to many sources.
A collective autobiography, an impassioned history that weaves with other histories, in a long and subtle skein of what Loris Malaguzzi called threads of silk.
A history made in this way could pass for a history that has travelled down the years and seasons without a cloud....Instead experiences of this kind, so anomalous, always walk on threads of silk (Loris Malaguzzi, 1993).
In this era it seems memory too is made of threads of silk, instead Italy has a history of education and school full of rich intuitions, thinking and experience. This book attempts to reweave the threads, in order to rething and continue "designing" schools that know how to project into the future.
