Accelerator of Italian Language and Culture

Improve your Italian and widen your knowledge of Italian culture !


How did Elsa Schiaparelli revolutionise Italian fashion? Did you know that the worldwide popular “Spaghetti alla bolognese” are not actually part of the traditional Bolognese or even Italian cuisine? Why we should never put pinaeapple on pizza? What does the pinecone gesture exactly mean? And why do they avoid walking under stairs or why do they feel unlucky if they see a black cat?

garagErasmus Foundation and Erasmus+ INDIRE are organising this initiative giving an opportunity for exchange students who cannot join face to face courses of Italian to improve their basic-intermediate level of Italian and widen their knowledge about Italy.

An introductory session on December 2020 and three intensive multi-session webinars on January 2021, March 2021 and May 2021 will be organised in collaboration with the wonderful team of professors of the Dante Aligheri Language Institute of Recanati.

These sessions will provide students from all over the world with basic & intermediate skills of Italian language and widen their knowledge about the most important aspects of the Italian culture, habits, customs… and even cuisine. They will always follow the same structure, with a first strictly pedagogical part and a second more informal one on the customs and traditions of Italy.

This initiative is part of THE + OF ERASMUS project: Erasmus+ INDIRE and garagErasmus Foundation are merging their forces to turn a period of difficulty for the next Generation of Europeans into an opportunity to improve the Erasmus+ experience to unequivocally underline the value, even in a difficult period, of the studies and internships carried out thanks to the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
