I think my favorite bit of "trivia" is the occasion of Dr. Montessori and Gandhi playing the Silence Game together with a group of children.
I love the quote "If we are to teach real peace in the world, we have to start with the children" excerpted from a speech he gave at the training center.

She was also featured on the lire (paper money in Italy). I guess this was before they switched to the Euro. Here are a few more tidbits:
