Abstract

Psychomotricity has spread in the Italian school context, in the second half of the seventies, proposing itself as a discipline with individualized and personalized itineraries, oriented to develop the motor, relational and cognitive skills of children with disabilities, managing to carry on, since the first experimentation protocols, both the educational and therapeutic branches. In this scenario, psychomotor practice is proposed as an added value able to contribute to the improvement of the educational and training offer of schools and to enrich educational-didactic practices in an inclusive perspective. With this aim, the Municipality of Bologna has proposed, within kindergartens, the AGIO Project which proposes psychomotor activity paths within the training offer, to promote well-being and the prevention of social disadvantage. It was presented by Luisa Formenti and aims specifically to experiment with sensory-motor perceptual patterns and fusional pleasure, to the development of creativity, and to the enhancement of body expressiveness, communication and symbolization skills.
