You attend Italian language courses, but the result is yet to reach your expectations…
You speak Italian a little, but do not feel comfortable when speaking with native speakers…
You want to discuss various issues, but the list of topics in the phrase book is the thing that limits your opportunities…
• You dream to see the real Italy, but do not want to travel with a travel agency…

Who are we?

The Cultural Centre of Fabrizio de André was opened in 2011 in the city of Sanremo, Italy. Nowadays it is a school chain with a unique communicative methodology of teaching Italian. Our language programmes are used by students all over the world!

We were the first in Italy to develop the programme which allows you not to swot from the book, but to take part in master classes and meetings with the Italians, thus memorizing 90% of the material and diving into the culture by 100%. Our school in Sanremo has already helped more than 2000 students to speak the language of Dante Alighieri, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Giuseppe Garibaldi, Gianni Rodari, Luciano Pavarotti and Adriano Celentano, Roberto Cavalli and Gianni Versace, Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren, Federico Fellini and Paolo Sorrentino…!

With the help of our programme you will:

  • start to think in Italian by the end of the first day;
  • learn how to ask questions and how to answer them;
  • be able to talk about different topics in Italian;
  • see the most stunning places of Italy, France and Monaco;
  • find new friends and meet beautiful people;
  • feel the taste of the Italian lifestyle;
  • change your perception of holidays.

How does it work?

Our programmes are based on the principles of Edgar Dale. Studies of this scholar prove that by ‘digesting’ information you learn it by 90%. Hence, the best way to learn Italian is to go to Italy! Our experts offer a way of studying, where you dive into the real Italian lifestyle. Let us compare the process of studying with a theatre, where the country is the stage, and students are actors. During lessons you ‘learn your part’ (Italian grammar, vocabulary), and during ‘attività' you play this role (communicate with friendly and responsive people from the city of Imperia on the coast of the Ligurian Sea).  

Several times more efficient than regular courses
