The intervention is inspired by Loris Malaguzzi’s idea of environment as a third teacher and proposes a non-neutral scenario: a stimulating, experienceable, dynamic and appropriable space. The aspiration is to provide the children of the Garzoni School an environment that is very different from the others currently present in the building and whose strong identity can instill the desire to walk in.

The intervention is based on the insertion of a wooden device arranged on the perimeter that acts as a seat, chest, display case, bookcase, storage, etc. Its articulation suggests several activities: reading, theater, music, botany, creative workshops, without defining them clearly in order to maximize the flexibility and allowing the contamination of knowledge while stimulating relational dynamics. In addition to the lower modules, the device includes wardrobes that develop vertically, capable of accommodating the material. In addition, a long board is juxtaposed to the wall stimulating children to leave traces of their activities.
