Join us as we celebrate Loris Malaguzzi's 100th Birthday and watch the film, The Man from Reggio Emilia.  There will be birthday cake!

Free event, but registration by ticket is required as seats are limited.

We'll see the documentary film on the history of the municipal nursery schools and preschools of Reggio Emilia, through the voice and testimony of Loris Malaguzzi (1920-1994).

Having experienced growing up under Fascist rule as a young child, Malaguzzi was determined to help build a better future for the children and families of Reggio Emilia who were greatly affected by the war and the political leadership of their country (Thornton & Brunton, 2015). In hearing about Villa Cella, Malaguzzi went to find out more about this preschool project built by the hands of the people. Inspired to learn more about very young children, he then trained as a psychologist and became a leader in the parent cooperative movement, supporting parents, families and teachers in the education of their young children. Malaguzzi was also influential in getting the city government to take on the running of the many "people's schools" which emerged following Villa Cella and the eventual opening of the first municipal preschool in 1963 (Hendrick, 1997, p. 5).
