“At night the sky talks to the trees. The trees make a kind of music that comes out of their leaves and the flowers, too; the wind is the loudest music, the air is the softest.”
Children recount their personal experiences and sentiments depicting Reggio Emilia as a positive, livable, and welcoming city. Through words and drawings, children traverse the streets, squares, monuments, churches, and buildings of the city. This book is both a portrait and a guide, outlining the identity of the city and expressing the dimension of the children’s relationship with a real or hypothetical visitor, with their suggestions on what to see and how to visit and live in Reggio Emilia.
