Notizie per 2017: Plan for the New Year!

Italia in Ohio will start 2017 with new experiences for lovers of Italian language and culture!

For language classes we have Beginner’s Italian Year 1 Session 1, meant for people who are starting from ground zero.?
We also will follow-up Year 1 session 1 that started in October with Session 2.
Year 2 Session 2 will bring those intermediate students even further along the road to fluency.
And Advanced Italian will continue to combine more sophisticated aspects of grammar with enhanced conversation and a better understanding of current Italian culture.

Thereafter we will explore the treasures of Napoli, Palermo, and many more locations throughout Italy.  Our guide for these travels will be an Italian art expert Rosa Di Grottole – you will learn more about her incredible background in the coming weeks.

In conjunction with the Wexner Center Center for the Arts there will be a series of Italian films that focus on the career of Italian film icon, Anna Magnani. This nine film retrospective offers a chance to see some of her greatest performances in films directed by such titans as Roberto Rossellini, Luchino Visconti, and Vittorio de Sica, most on new 35 mm prints. Details are being developed now.

And keep in mind that our study abroad program 2017 will include an optional trip to Sicilia with a native guide – our very own Samanta Buffa!
