In order to understand this reality it’s necessary to take a step back to 1911, when the first production of Montessori Materials started, according to the specifications given by Maria Montessori herself, who in that period was a guest of her friend and great admirer Maria Maraini Guerrieri Gonzaga. The company, which at the beginning was a small workshop called “Ernesto Bassoli e Figli”, became first a private company “Baroni e Marangon”, and in 1975 a cooperative business enterprise under the name of “Gonzagarredi Soc. Coop.
Started since April the 1st 2014, the newco GAM GonzagArredi Montessori Srl (abbreviation G.A.M.) inherited the tradition of the cooperative company and melted it to the experience in manageent and to the productive capacity of Fami, the company who holds the property.
GonzagArredi Montessori mantained the commercial structure of the cooperative company, and produces today equipment and furnitures for kids in infant toddlers, kindergartens, schools, libraries, day care, and Montessori educational materials.
The company has always worked in cooperation with university professors and experts in the field of furniture and education. New range of products, efficiency and the ability to respond to custom requests are essential characteristics in order to supply adequately schools and cultural or social buildings.
Montessori Materials are recognised and approved by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), which was founded in Amsterdam by Maria Montessori. Gonzagarredi is the only company in Italy whose products are certificated by AMI association.
