Thanks Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) for sharing this video with Maria Montessori and her son Mario in #Amsterdam #montessori150 #lecture💛💫
On March 1, 1950, Maria Montessori lectured in Amsterdam’s Bach auditorium and spoke on t
The lecture was recorded by Dutch radio and Mr Wim Eijgensteijn, a Dutch amateur filmmaker, made some footage around the event. At the start of the short film we see people filing into the lecture, children waiting for the arrival of Maria Montessori by car, escorted by her grandson Mario Montessori Junior. At the end of the lecture Dr Montessori leaves the auditorium happily, greeting people. For the very observant watcher, we also see a glimpse of Mario Montessori and her granddaughter Renilde carrying flowers.
Thanks to the work of Mr Ger Langerijs this film was restored and remastered with the assistance of the Amsterdam Montessori Lyceum. We thank him for his permission to share this short film online in honour of Maria Montessori’s 150th celebratory year.
