Sara De Poi


Sara De Poi has been an atelierista and video documentation maker with Reggio Children since 2005.
For Reggio Children, De Poi collaborates on the realisation of publishing projects, and professional learning journeys, through participating in seminars and workshops in Italy and abroad.

She obtained her degree in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage from the University of Udine, Italy, in 2003.

In 2004 she participated in Reggio Children’s Master’s course in Professional Development for Atelieristas.

In the years following her degree she continued to deepen her knowledge of the visual languages, with particular emphasis on photography and cinema, through workshops in documentary film-making and courses in professional video montage and editing.

De Poi participates in project groups, and works with audiovisual documentation recordings of experiences realised by children and teachers, including editing, montage, and post-production of documentary material by the Istituzione of Preschools and Infant-toddler Centres of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, and by Reggio Children.

Starting with documentation made in schools, De Poi creates video material for exhibitions, public showings, and communications.

Together with Vea Vecchi and Mirella Ruozzi, she curated the exhibition “A festive thought. Visual metaphor in children’s learning processes”, realised in collaboration with the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
