2021

"Fondazione Reggio Children, which in these ten years of life has built its own identity brick by brick, feels the urgency of the educational emergency very clearly.
Enhance that solidarity - so profound in the history of the city of Reggio Emilia - which allows us to bring quality education where everything seems impossible, where there is nothing or where there is so much that there is no more. In the South of the World as in the big cities. Because the school is not its borders, its walls, the school is "Fare Scuola (making school)".
