Feedback - what people say about us
"We were delighted with our experience with the Centro Italiano di Firenze and all of the people there. We most certainly did enjoy our time with Maria Cristina and her family in Paterno for the olive harvesting. For two Americans unfamiliar with the rhythms of the Italian countryside, it was one of the best days imaginable. We don't know if harvesting olives and picnicking in the groves is romantic to Italians but it surely is to Americans -- or these two at least.
VIDEO Language & activities for school parties
The aim of this program is to spend a week or more with your own class surrounded by Italian daily life, practicing the language and exploring the many aspects of Italian culture and society.
Feedback of an Italian teacher:
"Tante grazie! Siamo ritornati molto bene, ma con il rammarico di dover lasciare Firenze! Ci siamo trovati veramente benissimo, sia a scuola (i ragazzi) che con le famiglie (i ragazzi) e anche nel "nostro" B & B (noi due insegnanti). Raccomanderemo sicuramente il centro e tutti i servizi. E chissà, forse ritornerò con un'altra classe già presto. Saluti a tutti!" -Annemarie Schweizer
