One city, many children
Memories of a present history
The story about the creation and the development of the Preschools and Infant-toddler Centres in Reggio Emilia: a broad research project which joined together voices and thoughts of many different protagonists.
A collective self-biography, a passionate story interconnected with other stories in a long, thin plot made of silk threads as Loris Malaguzzi used to say: such a story can be presented like a story which clearly crossed the years and the seasons…
instead experiences like this, so anomalous, are always walking on silk threads.
With interviews and texts by Renzo Bonazzi, Simona Bonilauri,
Ettore Borghi, Jerome Bruner, Antonio Canovi, Luciano Corradini, Gunilla Dahlberg, Graziano Delrio, Paul Ginsborg, Loris Malaguzzi, Carla Rinaldi, Vea Vecchi.
Edited by Rolando Baldini, Ilaria Cavallini and Vania Vecchi

Language of Alberto Burri”, which comprises various projects carried out in infant-toddler centers, preschools and elementary schools, following the retrospective exhibition of works by Italian artist Alberto Burri, held in Reggio Emilia from November 2001 through January 2002.

Dialogues with Places
Every place has a soul, an identity. Trying to discover it and relate to it means also learning to recognise our own soul. Children in infant-toddler centres and preschools explored the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre while work was still in progress.They chose a space that was interesting for them and designed a work of art, a gift, created in dialogue and empathy with their chosen place. Taken from the Dialogues with Places exhibition, children’s experience and projects are presented in the form of a work notebook.

The languages of food
Recipes, experiences and thoughts
Pedagogy and a culture of eating from the kitchens of Reggio Emilia’s
municipal infant-toddler centres and preschools.
Reggio Emilia’s decision to maintain kitchens in each municipal infant-toddler centre and preschool has always been of pedagogical and cultural significance. These kitchens constitute a kind of “gastronomic resistance”, safeguarding diversity and maintaining value and respect for different tastes, faith-based choices and health indicators. Kitchens are places for listening to families and customs, and orient us in the direction of community at the same time. Community meals become a space, a place of relationship and meeting with the world. From this context we have created a book of recipes, experiences, projects and thinking.
