An exhibition called “Lo stupore del conoscere” (The wonder of learning), promoted by the Ontario Reggio Association in association with the Italian Cultural Institute (IIC) in Toronto, runs until November 13. It was organised by Reggio Children and the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance, and began a world tour in 2008 which ends in 2018. It moves from city to city every six months in North America, and now it is Toronto’s turn. It is on show there in the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
The exhibition illustrates the work of Reggio Emilia’s nurseries, kindergardens and primary schools. Like the previous exhibition, “I cento linguaggi dei bambini” (The Hundred Languages of Children), it aims to reaffirm the founding values of Reggio Emilia towards education and especially to illustrate changes, innovations and developments. The exhibition looks at situations around schools and is targeted at those who believe that safeguarding education processes and ensuring their evolution is of vital importance for society.
