6th January 1907

Letter written by Maria Montessori commemorating the opening of the first Casa dei Bambini:

I started my work like a peasant who had put aside good seeds of wheat, and to whom a fertile piece of land had been offered so he could sow it according to his wish.  But it was not to be.  As soon as I moved the sods of that earth, I found gold, rather than wheat.  The sods were hiding a precious treasure.
