The School

The Leonardo da Vinci school is your window to Rome and to all of Italy. It’s about learning Italian. It’s about following your passions. It’s a continous adventure through art, cooking and Italian fashion.

Central. Located two steps from Piazza Navona and a few small streets away from Castel Sant’Angelo, the striking Palazzo del Banco di Santo Spirito is home to the school. A mix between ancient ambience and modern life, where people from different countries and cultures meet with a passion and an objective in common: to learn Italian.

Organised and interactive. What we offer is an immersion in Italian language, which is engaging and focused, ranging from ‘survival’ in Italian, to specialized and academic language.

Stimulating. The key elements of the lessons are communication and interaction. The idea is to learn a living, vibrant language. The Scuola Leonardo da Vinci does not offer just teaching of the language, but also extra, educational ‘free time’ activities, where you learn about history of art, fashion and food.
