Reggio Emilia, Italy
After Newsweek magazine identified the small City of Reggio Emilia's pre-school system as one of the ten best in the world, the quiet community was deluged with visitors, professional educators, and publishers wanting to capitalize on Reggio Emilia's fame. Consultants from WolfBrown, in conjunction with Harvard PACE, was asked to help set up a separate organization to deal with international interest and to develop a way for the pre-school system to disseminate its methods and materials throughout the world. In addition to providing a structural model for the organization, WolfBrown reviewed and revised contract offers from potential partners from outside of Italy.
