Reggio Children | Loris Malaguzzi International Centre | Reggio Emilia Approach

The Loris Malaguzzi International Centre, a space open to all

The Loris Malaguzzi International Centre is a place of encounter and exchange for those who intend to innovate education and culture – in Reggio Emilia, in Italy and in the world. It is a space open to every age, to ideas, to diverse cultures; a space that - starting from experience in the city’s municipal infant-toddler centres and preschools – produces research, experimentation and innovation on the content and processes of education for 0-99 year olds. The Loris Malaguzzi International Centre is a living manifesto of the Reggio Emilia Approach®.
