In honor of Maria Montessori’s 150th birthday, an Italian architect and artist named Matteo Ferroni is crafting a sculpture of her as a monument for children. The sculpture will live in a public square in Perugia, Italy—known as a “Montessori City” because of the training center that Maria founded there in 1950, and because today, 1 out of every 20 residents there is Montessori educated!
Matteo was first introduced to form and space as a Montessori child and in 2018, he returned to his former Children’s House in Perugia to restore the Montessori Observation classroom.
