About Centro Linguistico Italiano Dante Alighieri

Italian language school in Rome

Life in the Eternal City is an indescribable thrill. I have known this since I got there to stay for 2 months. It’s been 30 years since then. Learn to discover it and let yourself be enchanted by the chaos of its history, art, smells, tastes and even music… There are many opportunities to get closer to our culture and discover Rome through its language…Italian!
