Language and Culture

Learning Italian

Italian is a language of culture: knowing it means having access to a literary heritage of fundamental importance to global history, from Dante and Boccaccio to the more contemporary Andrea Camilleri and Elena Ferrante. There are numerous areas of culture that can be learned through Italian such as the visual arts, cinema and design.

Italian is a language of study: as of 2015, more than two million people around the world decide to study this language, allowing them to get in touch with the culture of the bel paese in a more direct and effective way.

Italian is a working language. From the large fashion and furniture industries, which have defined the standard of Made in Italy, to the small – but no less relevant – Italian craftsmanship, this language is a protagonist in countless areas of work.

If you speak Italian, a visit to our peninsula, its beauties and its people becomes a genuine pleasure, opening the door to a deeper understanding of the cities of art, natural wonders and the extraordinary polyphonic richness that characterizes this country.
