 The school in Florence

The school

The classrooms in Centro Italiano are located in a historic building in the nineteenth-century tree-lined Piazza D’Azeglio. Just a couple of minutes’ walk away is the S. Ambrogio district with its antique food stalls and flea market. It’s an area which has maintained its identity with mainly Florentine residents, off the track of mass tourism. Little shops, artisan’s workshops, coffee shops, restaurants and theaters make this part of Florence particularly pleasant and lively. Not far away are Piazza Santa Croce, the Duomo, the University and some of the most important museums in the city.The area is on most bus routes making it easy to reach other parts of the city quickly and easily.
The school premises include spacious airy, classrooms, an internet point, a free Internet connection and a peaceful garden.

 

Management and teaching staff

The school is run by Anja Schultz and Andrea Moradei,  who having gained  almost 30 years experience in the field, they have decided to create this new center, with the aim of offering  a variety of programs better suited to the demands and interests of language learners from abroad. Note in particular the customized Italian language programs directly linked to students’ reasons for learning Italian. Special attention is now devoted to the afternoon individual and group programs providing background information to History of art, the Arts, photography, modern architecture and design , political and social analysis, Tuscan cuisine, food and wine. This new approach naturally led us to consider sharing experiences with the Centro Italiano in Naples, as their centre have been operating along these lines for many years, with excellent results. We should therefore like to offer our students the results of both experiences.
