We take up the walk again

Since Malaguzzi’s death, important developments have taken place in the management of Reggio schools and Reggio’s relations with the wider world (discussed in Chapters 5 and 11). Interest in Reggio Emilia’s pedagogical philosophy has grown further and expanded over time internationally, building new pathways that have partially modified the work of atelieristas and teachers, increasingly called upon to communicate work they carry out with colleagues from other parts of Italy and abroad. This growing national and international role for Reggio’s pedagogical philosophy has been supported by Reggio Children in different ways; through showing the exhibition entitled The Hundred Languages of Children, which now exists in four different digital editions simultaneously shown on four continents; through the organizing of a publishing house with sometimes unanticipated success; through working on professional development for groups coming from around the world; through national and international conferences and seminars; through various consulting work; and more recently through courses for those who wish to become pedagogistas and atelieristas. All these activities have seen a large contribution from ateliers in giving visibility to work with children, and as always happens, sometimes risks have been run.
