When Education Meets Design
Play to Learn
A podcast series of five episodes, a journey through Italy in the 60s and 70s bringing together design and children, doodles, teaching, fairy tales and imagination.
A project by Corraini Edizioni for ICI London with the collaboration of Radio Raheem. In Italy in the 60s and 70s, people like Gianni Rodari, Bruno Munari, Bruno Danese, Jacqueline Vodoz and Enzo Mari shared the idea that looking after children is one way to contribute to building a better future. Merging imagination, design, and teaching. In this five part podcast, selected scholars talk about how this revolution came about during Italy’s economic boom and the great reforms that were taking place in Italian society at the same time, from education and work, to family and culture. They will discuss this with designers, critics, experts, pedagogues and teachers, with those who had first hand experience of this period and with those who are working today on bringing together design and teaching cultures.
