The Black Rubber Column
part of the 'Wonder of Learning' series
During the explorations in the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre before it was opened to the public, children are enchanted by the columns in the Exhibition hall.
They decide to prepare a gift for them: a series of garments made of different materials that columns can wear on and change.
From the planning to the realisation of the final draft of The Black Rubber Column of the Diana Preschool: a small
and precious narration reveals children’s learning strategies.
