Piccola Università Italiana | Boutique Italian Language Schools in Fantastic Locations


Art is magic: Drawing is speaking to the eye; talking is painting to the ear
(Joseph Joubert, French author, 1754-1824)

Our school gives you the possibility to combine an Italian language course with a painting course.

These classes will be held as private lessons, one-to-one, so that our teachers will be able to enhance and take care of  your painting skills and artistic development in the best possible way.

Italiano + pittura is a tailor-made programme for all those who want to fully enjoy their holiday and benefit from every moment. It is the ideal combination of culture, Italian dolce vita, and relaxation while learning or enhancing your painting skills. Enjoy your vacation to the fullest! Our programme also offers you the possibility to participate in a group painting course. This option is ideal for families with kids, couples or friends with different interests. While one of you is learning Italian, others can indulge in their preferred hobby or interest, and attend a highly professional painting course at a renowned art school!

Rates for groups are available upon request!
