Gonzagarredi is is not only a part of the Montessori history but an integral part that defines Montessori materials. The history of Montessori materials started, grew and originally established itself in Italy, Maria Montessori’s native country, through a collaboration between Maria Montessori and the firm then known as “Ernesto Bassoli e Figli” and later renamed “Società Anonima per il Materiale Montessori”. The very first Montessori materials in the world, were produced in Italy by Gonzag Arredi. Today, Gonzagarredi is one of only four companies in the world that produce Montessori educational material under the supervision and certification of Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) , headquartered in Amsterdam.

Over the past 10 years, the brand has been absent from the United States. Today, the brand is being once again revived and is being made available to the Montessori community through ETC Montessori. Gonzagarredi is sold exclusively through The Montessori Classroom website, under the business to customer model.
