“The more time you spend with children, the more you notice how inquisitive they are about the world and how keen is their thinking even about the most subtle things—things which escape materiality, easy recognition, definite forms, and the laws of invariance, things you can touch but can’t touch, that brush against real and imaginary, that have something of the mysterious about them and offer wide margins of interpretation.”

–Loris Malaguzzi,
Reggio Emilia, Italy
