Cultural activities

Together with our Italian lessons, the Italian School also focuses on the promotion of Italian culture. In fact, learning a language means becoming a traveler and an explorer, not a simple tourist! You will thus enjoy all the different shades of such an ancient and historic culture, which is constantly developing and renewing itself. 

Remember that:

  • Italy owns the majority of UNESCO heritage sites, disclosing environmental, cultural, and artistic treasures
  • By learning Italian, you will be able to watch Fellini’s, Visconti’s, Benigni’s, and Sorrentino’s movies without captions
  • Italy is the fashion capital and it is the world leader in cookery. This is why Italian has the highest number of words to describe food!

Since Italy is so rich in culture, the Italian School proposes recreational moments to get to know our collective heritage.
