The exhibition at the National Central Library was born as part of the initiatives promoted by the National Committee for the celebrations of the centenary of the birth of Mario Lodi in the capital and presents ninety images including photographs, drawings and reproductions of documents that pay homage to the important figure of the teacher, pedagogist and writer Mario Lodi (1922-2014) and the educational experience conducted in class with his own pupils in the elementary schools of San Giovanni in Croce and Vho di Piadena between 1948 and 1978. An experience narrated in many of his books and which has made a decisive contribution to the renewal of Italian and international pedagogy, opening up new perspectives for teaching practices.
The evocative photographic journey shows the daily life of a small community of children who, thanks to their teacher, discover the world and society; it is a visual journey that tells the actuality of active teaching and the vision of a school based on positive values such as solidarity, cooperation and collaboration, in which each child can develop their own aptitudes and intelligence, their own abilities expressive, creative and logical.
The initiative is organized by the National Central Library of Rome in collaboration with the Casa delle Arti e del Gioco – Mario Lodi and with the National Committee for the celebrations of the centenary of the birth of Mario Lodi and with the contribution of: National Association of Consumer Cooperatives – COOP; Ministry of Culture – Directorate General for Education, Research and Cultural Institutes; Department of Education Sciences and “Mauro Laeng” School and Education Museum of the Roma Tre University.
