Italian Online Lessons during COVID-19 (June)

Dear Student,

Like every month, we would like to inform you about the latest news and happenings.

These were uncertain, difficult months but also months that brought us closer to the things that matter most, which allowed us to spend time with the people we love: a simple but at the same time so spectacular life! We hope it was like that for you too. Certainly, in many years, we will think back of the quarantine as a beautiful moment … we wish it will be like this.

Our lovely Sofie looks at the sea, just as we look forward to being able to give you a certain communication of the reopening day of our schools in Trieste and Tropea. But this decision must be taken with such caution because we want to reopen in compliance with all regulations and with respect for everyone’s health.

We assure you that we can’t wait to reopen the doors of our schools …

In the meantime, we thank all our students, both current and future, for their patience, support, and trust. It means a lot to us!

Waiting for the arrival of this news we send you in the meantime offers and news for our online courses as well as the cultural programme for June.

Antonio, Simone, little Sofie and all the wonderful teachers of the Piccola Università Italiana

It’s pumpkin time!

Not far from Trieste, in the heart of Friuli, there is an exquisite little town which this year was voted the most beautiful village of Italy. It’s a small medieval village named Venzone which is famous for its fragrant lavender, its high walls, and an air of times past. A strategic crossroads in ancient times and during the Middle Ages, Venzone is located at the foothills of the Julian Alps near the Austrian and Slovenian border, surrounded by greenery and nature.

This year, as in every year, the “Festa della Zucca” (Pumpkin Festival), a pageant with ancient origins which was revived in 1991, will take place on the fourth weekend of October. It’s a not-to-be-missed event for those who want to fully immerse themselves in the local traditions.

The gathering will take place on October 21 and 22 2017, two days of festivities during which the pumpkin will reign supreme, the entire town will light up with magic and history, and the streets will be filled with noblemen, ladies and knights with lit torches, in an authentic medieval setting. The event will feature music and dances, contests with prizes, acrobats and fire-eaters, and, of course, tastings of pumpkin-based dishes accompanied by excellent wines.

We will bring you to Venzone to discover all this: in addition to the Italian courses, we offer an interesting cultural program in which you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a magical setting, as if you were in a fifteenth century fairy tale.

Are you ready to discover Venzone?

Book your Italian language course in Trieste and immerge in an authentic piece of Italian culture!
