The children’s room
Me and me as a child
The nursery is the shelter where children nurture their dreams and where they can play without being stopped. It is the space for creativity and rebellion where they cultivate their imagination, intelligence and social skills, thanks to play. Play helps children to train their imaginative and empathic capacities, and its success depends on the opportunities offered by environment. The nursery becomes the favourite place for self-expression and introspection, made up of colours, objects and sounds blending – sometimes chaotically – in a world of secrets and sweet lies, where children can discover the relationship with their own imaginary side. It is a metaphorical place no less than a real one: adults need to go on taking shelter in their own little room to rediscover themselves and give voice to their “inner child”. Gian Paolo Lazzer of Strategy Innovation and Marco Moro, President of Morocolor, take us on an imaginative and colourful journey to rediscover our own selves.
