This article is the basis of a research wich aims to address the correlation between Theatrical Education and the possibil- ity of improving children’s learning skills, stimulating the development of Emotional Intelligence and TOM. UNESCO has promoted, through the global conferences on artistic education, educational and training objectives, concerning the educational value of experiences with artistic performances, relied on by the studies of the Faculty of Education. This step has committed the Member States, and therefore Italy, to design and execute high-level programs to meet the edu- cational needs of children and young people in an appropriate manner with the reality in which they will have to fit in. The H.E.R.A.C.L.E. research laboratory has recently carried out a work program called LATE, (“Learning and activation through experience”), aimed at identifying a framework capable of bringing into dialogue evolutionary and educational perspectives, to detect the possession of fundamental skills and knowledge for the development of “Cross-modal skills” a sample kindergarten’s student of Roman territory. We wanted to investigate how important a multilateral and transversal didactic path since in the preschool age could be, to enhance the potential of the child in function of a practical access to primary school, being able to reach the goal of realizing appropriate didactic paths for the qualification, the strengthening and enhancement of the child’s abilities through experiential and bodily training in teaching processes. The research is developing in Milan’s district analyzing the influence of theatricality in the kindergarten. The sample involves several kindergartens for a total of 150 children between 3-6 age. the project involves the experimentation of dramatic play, a training and educational activity, which aims at the global development of the individual. The aim of this experience is to bring the child to develop of his creativity, through the use of imagination but, at the same time, it also allows him to favour his integration into the group, the knowledge of himself and of the others and building one’s own way of seeing reality.
