Since old ages games have been considered fundamental, because they are the reflection of one people’s culture. Nowadays, the disruption of educational benchmarks and the lack of places where it is possible to play freely have assigned to school the task of creating well-defined places where it is possible to experience all aspects of social life. Since before her delivery, a baby relates to her mother through movements, and later on she gets to know herself and gets in touch with others – all through various developmental stages. The playful-moving activities support this socialization route: the group becomes a way to experience the surrounding world. Playfulmoving experiences can lead to socially positive attitudes such as empathy, appreciation, altruism and respect for others, being founded on a guided educational relationship.
