Vera Italia, True Italy, however you call it, it always means one thing: 100% authenticity.

Discover the art and Italian handcrafted tradition. Literary insights and art history will accompany you during your Italian lessons. Let yourself be carried away by your creativity during our pottery classes to live a unique and unforgettable experience.


Culture, what a passion!

Culture is priceless, you know. These real culture lessons – free and held by specialized teachers – cover various topics. Here are some examples.
Literature lessons (texts of a given period or Italian author are read / commented together); Italian history lessons; art history lessons (study of Italian periods, authors or cities of art). So, before the trip to Florence, Urbino, Milan or any other city you are interested in visiting, you will know more about their history and their museums.


Learn the art (and put it in your suitcase!)

Nothing expresses the culture and sensitivity of a country more than the art and crafts it produces. As an Italian proverb says, “Learn art and put it aside”, who knows when an acquired artistic skill will become handy one day.
In our ceramics courses you will follow all the steps for creating and decorating an object that you can take back home with you as a souvenir. A unique piece to remind you of an equally unique experience! So, “Learn art and put it in your suitcase”!

Urbania has a long tradition of ceramics, dating back to the middle ages. The course includes the making of several pieces of pottery, under the guide of a local pottery teacher. The course is for those who wish to learn or improve their artistic talents thanks to the support of a well known local art teacher. The course will include either the painting of an outdoor picture, enjoying the splendid local landscape, or in the studio.

We Are Family

Centro Studi Italiani is run by a family and we consider each student and each teacher to be a part of it!

Italians can always count on the support of a big, warm and welcoming family. In our schools, you will experience the same warmth, while learning in a familiar environment, where everyone is special.
Our teaching method puts each student at the center of the education experience, that takes place not only inside the classroom but also outside. For this reason, we always offer cultural experiences, excursions, workshops and cultural trips in order to broaden your learning experience and make you feel at home.
