Loris Malaguzzi:

"Essential characteristics of the pedagogical and cultural choices we have taken as our axiological design are: constant reflection on children’s existential situation (…); identification of responses to children’s formative and enculturation needs (…), responses which require the most active participation of families and wide-reaching political and public solidarity; a definition of open pedagogical and educational planning which is constantly in the phase of updating (…) for children’s formative wholeness, more complete self-possession and greater enjoyment of knowledge processes – through research, connecting facts, and the relations between action and languages (verbal and non-verbal)."
Social Management, 1984
