Piccola Università Italiana | Boutique Italian Language Schools in Fantastic Locations


Our schools also offer an Italian culture course.

Italy is a country whose culture has no borders… It’s, par excellence, the country of culture! Just think of the word opera which means in Italian everything we consider artistic creation. When we refer to the concept of “Italian culture”, we mean art, history, literature, opera, architecture, science and much more.
Our courses will allow us to deepen various aspects related to the Italian cultural landscape taking you on an unforgettable journey!

To all those who have a passion for Italian and want to know its many cultural facets.
To teachers and foreign researchers who want to improve their knowledge and make their students even more curious.
Our Italian General knowledge course is addressed to all those who need to deepen their cultural knowledge for professional reasons or simply for passion.

This course can be held either as an individual course or as an intensive course.  It’s up to you! Special group courses can also be organized for participants at the same level of competence, and who wish to focus on the same topic.
