Peace is based on the very nature of man. It is a unique and universal principle. This principle must lead to the realization of the science of peace and the education of men for peace.
M. Montessori, 1964
In the heart of Umbria, renowned for its association with the notable pacifist Aldo Capitini and Saint Francis of Assisi, Maria Montessori chose this region as the backdrop for her inaugural lectures at the University for Foreigners of Perugia in 1949. Within the lectures on "La formazione dell'uomo", she laid the groundwork for her innovative pedagogy. Today, Montessori educators and trainers from across the globe converge at this historic institution, where they explore the intersections of Montessori pedagogy, inclusion, and peace education, drawing inspiration from the very landscapes that influenced Maria Montessori's transformative ideas.
Teachers and Montessori trainers who complete this course will not only have the opportunity to study in the places visited by Maria Montessori, but they will also be active participants in dialogues and discussions on best educational practices related to the themes of inclusion and peace education.
