The school is run by Anja Schultz and Andrea Moradei, who having gained almost 30 years experience in the field, they have decided to create this new center, with the aim of offering a variety of programs better suited to the demands and interests of language learners from abroad. Note in particular the customized Italian language programs directly linked to students’ reasons for learning Italian. Special attention is now devoted to the afternoon individual and group programs providing background information to History of art, the Arts, photography, modern architecture and design , political and social analysis, Tuscan cuisine, food and wine. This new approach naturally led us to consider sharing experiences with the Centro Italiano in Naples, as their center have been operating along these lines for many years, with excellent results. We should therefore like to offer our students the results of both experiences.
Description: it is our belief that people interested in learning Italian are generally moved by the desire to know more about the culture and history of this country. So for our main courses, we’ve decided to offer a number of cultural activities in the afternoons in addition to the group lessons in Italian language in the mornings. These are included in the price. Groups: minimum 2 – maximum 5 students. Five teaching levels. Minimum age: 15 years old.
