In response to the detailed requests made by the national Italian context, our contribution refers to the policies carried out by the Town of Pistoia in the past twenty years of work in order to build a complex educational network of services for children; these services refer both to established institutional ones like infant toddler centers and nursery schools and also to new services that aim to satisfy the emerging needs of a rapidly changing society. Our emphasis is on the work so far carried out in the field of professional intercultural training in order to develop the meeting, exchanging and comparing of all differences.
