As she aged, Dr. Montessori had someone very special to assist her, her son Mario. Mario was born in Italy on March 31, 1898 while Dr. Montessori was directress at the Orthophrenic School. Mario's father, Dr. Montesano, also worked at the school. After Mario's birth, he was sent to be raised in the country. Dr. Montessori appointed Mario as her successor as director and coordinator of the work of the Association Montessori Internationale. Mario also shared his mother's convictions and worked tirelessly up until his own death in 1982 to ensure that his mother's work continues.
