Montessori Centenary Conference, Rome, 6, 7 January 2007


Centenary celebrations will commence in January 2007. The first major event will be a joint conference held in Rome on January 6 and 7. This will be a historic occasion, as the Association Montessori Internationale will be working closely with the Opera Nazionale Montessori to plan and execute this conference.

More detailed information on programme, hotels and tourist options can be found on the website of Opera Nazionale Montessori see:

The theme of this conference will centre on “The Child’s Mind” and “Education and Peace”. Representatives from AMI recently travelled to Rome to meet with the Opera Nazionale Montessori and begin working on this historic event.

For those interested in viewing the building that housed the first Casa dei Bambini, tours of San Lorenzo are also being planned, for January 5, 2007. As the AMI Trainers Meeting will follow the conference, it is hoped that all AMI trainers will be in Rome for the duration of the celebrations. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet and speak with trainers as well as catch up with colleagues from near and far.
