The School

The school is in an historic building in the heart of the town. It has 8 large, airy classrooms for Italian language courses, individual tuition and culture mini-courses and a hall that’s used for conferences, exhibitions and events. There’s a terrace with a lovely panoramic view – a favourite place for students to take their class breaks during the summer months – as well as an Internet point, free wifi access and the opportunity to study the Italian language or watch a film at the school at any time throughout the day.
