    Description of the project

The approach starts from the application of a set of laboratories based on the Reciprocal Maieutic Approach (RMA) for discovering and discussing the process that leads to the creation of intolerance and spreading of stereotypes.

    The RMA will be enriched with some peculiar aspects of the Montessori’s experience, the application of the observation principle and the re-toughgt of the learning space.
