In the research activities promoted by Fondazione, the importance of the playful dimension in learning processes is becoming increasingly evident.
Various projects of Fondazione offer contexts in which the expressive potential of play relates to various aspects of everyday children’s and adults’ life.
Play, meant as a design, connective and research action, which generates unexpected and unusual encounters, can become an integral part in different areas and fields of children’s and young people’s experience, encouraging the birth and development of ideas and projects, contributing to the development of complex and meaningful learning processes.
