Creativity has always been an expressive technique of internal and external experiences of the individual and allows to start an authentic psychological transformative process, encouraging the development of the psychic autonomy. This paper started from the workshop experience "Ricucire la nostra storia" ("Sewing our history"), organized by the cooperative Geco and sponsored by Fondazione Cariplo, in a school located in the suburbs of Milan with a high rate of immigration and family fragility. Through the art of sewing, the children, involved in the project, made creative artifacts, led by autobiographical inputs that facilitated the re-enactment and narration of events and emotions from the past and the present, as well as fantasies about their future. Every meeting helped the children open up to the group, integrate their memories and, as a consequence, increase their self-awareness.
Keywords: Psycho-educational workshop, creativity, integration of one’s own history
