The School

Dilit International House, officially authorised by the Italian Ministry of Education, was founded in 1974 and was one of the first language schools in Italy to specialise in the teaching of Italian.
It is housed in an elegant and quiet 5-storeyed art-deco villa a stone’s throw from the central railway station where all forms of public transport gather. All classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and air conditioning. Wi-fi connection is available throughout the building.  Included on the premises are a computer room, a garden, two terraces and a cafeteria.
