Creativity is an act that produces surprise, leads us to refl ect in the
perspective of the ‘as if’, and holds the individual undergoing a formative
process close to the temporal vitality of verbal futures, subjunctives
and optatives. This skill, which is typically human, sees its noblest ally
in fantasy: in fact, this is the freest of all faculties.
Pedagogically, fantasy and creativity are master words that make it
possible to focus and analyse the languages of childhood. Through a
brief analysis, aimed at shedding some light on these potentials, which
belong primarily to the human being, in these notes we will attempt
to plumb the formative languages of the fairy tale and the videogame
using fantasy and creativity as compasses.
