Fondazione Reggio Children Centro Loris Malaguzzi – Foundation

Fondazione Logo band

Our invitation is for you to climb up into a hot-air balloon and look down, where there are children, adults, things and events; and also the signs, marks and symbols which are there as indicators of information and messages only slightly traced. It is an ideal and privileged viewpoint that makes it possible to focus on individual images and then put
them together and make them move, in directions each one of us can imagine for ourselves.
