The Fare Scuola project

The Fare Scuola project

For education that is high quality, equitable and inclusive


Investing in schools in order to create new forms of learning and to make classrooms more dynamic, child-friendly places. These are important drivers of change and sustainable growth.

The “Fare Scuola” project grew out of a collaboration between Enel Cuore and the Fondazione Reggio Children – Centro Loris Malaguzzi. It aims to foster inclusive and equitable, quality education, as outlined in the fourth Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations (SDG4) in the 2030 Agenda, in the same direction as the commitment made by the Enel Group since 2015, placing these goals for a more sustainable future at the heart of its activities.

The project is also in line with the 2012 National Indications for infant schools and the first cycle of education, which were drafted with the help of of Edgar Morin, and with the “Ideas and proposals for schooling that looks to the future – School and the Covid-19 emergency” drawn up by an expert committee appointed by the Ministry of Education (Final report 13 July 2020).

The initiative is specifically for infant and primary schools throughout the country and aims to promote an innovative idea for using school spaces that confers an educational value on each one of them. The initiatives enable the creation of new spaces and the recovery of unused areas or classrooms, transforming them into areas for exploring ideas, building relationships and quality learning with a focus on flexibility, sharing, creativity and innovation.

Since 2015, 87 educational and architectural projects have been completed in schools, involving more than 12.000 children, 1.200 teachers, 40 planners and a rich network of institutional and social relationships.

Moreover, in addition to the interventions in schools, the project involved the construction and the adaptation of one civic centre, one "Spazio Giovani" and 2 EduLab, educational workshop dedicated to art at the Maxxi Museum in Rome. 


Fondazione Reggio Children, alongside which we launched the project, espouses the Reggio Emilia Approach, an educational philosophy developed in the early 1960s in Reggio Emilia and based on the perception of children as bearers of development potential. The vision underpinning Fare Scuola is thus not limited to rethinking physical spaces, it represents a broader pathway that involves teachers, families and pedagogical experts in ensuring children’s educational needs are met. This is a constantly evolving path in which schools are "rebuilt" on a daily basis, becoming a cultural and social bastion of its community.
