Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, pop singers Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, what do these celebrities have in common? They all attended a Montessori school, which now counts 22 thousand centers worldwide. But who was Maria Montessori, the Italian doctor who conceived this revolutionary educational method a century ago and which still inspires today? This documentary aims to shine a light not only on the life of an extraordinary woman who refused to conform and freed herself of the restrictions posed by her gender but also on the modernity of her teaching method.
