Fine Arts, Art History and Italian language courses in Florence

Crash courses of Italian language on the weekend

Learn the maximum amount of Italian in the shortest possible time

Italian full immersion

Classes are normally held at weekends, but on your demand they can also be taken on weekdays or on different dates, for example on a series of Saturdays or Sundays, either once per week or once per fortnight. The training days of your language course do not need to be consecutive.

1-day course (6 or 8 hours)
2-day course (12 or 16 hours)
3-day course (18 or 24 hours)

The number of hours can be modified since the crash course is designed to be built around your busy schedule in Florence.

Classes can be taught either on a one-to-one or on a two-to-one tuition basis. In the latter case applicants must have roughly the same level of knowledge of Italian.

One term combined programme


Each Crash Course is held by 2 experienced and qualified teachers. The programme is monitored and controlled by Lorenzo Capanni, the Assistant Director.
After registering you will receive a student needs analysis to be filled out and returned to us. We will use this information to ensure that wherever possible the course will cover your specific needs.

Reception formalities

Reception formalities are completed at the school on first day when students meet the Assistant Director. They are then introduced to their morning class teacher and receive a personal folder containing a detailed course programme plus other useful general information.


At the end of the Course every student is awarded a certificate of attendance with a detailed report on their work during the course and level of attainment (according to the European Language Portfolio). In addition advice is given on what, in our opinion, is the next stage necessary to further improve their level of Italian.
