Centro Studi Italiani

We are an Italian language and culture school for international students based in Italy. Our schools are based in Milan, Genoa and Urbania and we provide online courses as well. The school was founded by Mr. Carlo Amedeo Pasotto in 1985 and since then we have hosted more than 16,000 students, of all ages, from all over the world. Now the school is run by the second generation of the Pasotto family, a strong and cohesive team that has brought the company to a new exciting era.


We strongly believe that great teachers make a great school.

For this reason, we carefully select our teachers considering their education, their personal and innate aptitude and their teaching experience.
Our teachers are highly qualified and they regularly take refresher courses, specific for teaching the Italian language, which allow them to keep their selves updated with the latest teaching methods and technologies.
The key to the success of our teachers is to put the student – each individual student, with his own particular needs and potentials – at the center of our attention.

Listen to what our students say. Literally.
