Italian Culture And Italian Language Go Hand In Hand
Integrating our beautiful culture with our language is what makes Collina Italiana a one-of-a-kind Italian learning experience
Culture at Collina Italiana
When we first opened in 2007, we had a clear vision for Collina Italiana and how it would fit into the landscape of Italian schools around the U.S and the world. We wanted to deliver a unique learning experience by blending one of the most beautiful languages in the world with its heritage.
Building up a this unique kind of Italian school meant committing to our roots and culture to demonstrate for our students what Italy truly is, what it’s like to be Italian and everything our culture has to offer. Our goal is for our students to be in love with Italy, and the idea of Italy, as much as we are.
Our new webinar series will give you a taste of the rich culture of Italy: music, art, cuisine, and so much more.
In collaboration with native Italian experts, these events, in English and Italian, will showcase the traditional and popular aspects of Italian culture, as well as feature new perspectives with a modern twist.
