reggio emilia - city of a hundred languages

The child
is made of one hundred.
The child has
a hundred languages
a hundred hands
a hundred thoughts
a hundred ways of thinking
of playing, of speaking.
A hundred always a hundred...

from the poem “No way. The hundred is there.”
by Loris Malaguzzi. Translated by Lella Gandini


The hundred languages are the endless number of children’s potentials, their ability to wonder and to inquire.

The hundred languages remind us that there are multiple ways of seeing and multiple ways of being.

The internationally acclaimed educational excellence of the preschools and infant-toddler centres of Reggio Emilia now shares with the city some of its distinctive features: an aptitude for inquiry, a warmth of welcome, care for spaces and the relationships that form within them.

The Reggio Emilia City of Hundred Languages project was designed to uphold everyone’s right to well-being. In order for children to feel well in the city, everybody also has to feel well. We believe that a homely place for a child is a homely place for all people.

 
FOOD

The point of departure and experimentation for this project is the historical city centre
with its many restaurants, pizzerias, cafès, pastry and
ice cream shops. We hope that the project stimulates
curiosity and the motivation to explore yet other places
and spaces                around the city.




In the initial phase of development the theme of providing
a quality reception at the table was foregrounded,
as supported by the necessary attention given to
environmental comfort and to those services related to
children’s and adults’ well-being at the table. Of course,
one important aspect which cannot be ignored is the quality
of the food itself.
