garagErasmus Foundation is launching, thanks to the initiative of garagErasmus4Ancona, a brand-new project “The Accelerator: your Italian Week-End”. It is aimed at non-Italian students and professionals that want to enhance their knowledge of Italy, its language and its culture.

With the support of the Erasmus Student and Alumni Alliance (ESAA) and in collaboration with the Dante Alighieri School of Recanati, you will be able to spend a stunning virtual weekend in Italy on 30-31 May along with a full involvement in the local Italian customs.

 The Dante Alighieri School of Recanati has many years of experience in teaching Italian language to students from all over the world and to make them live a true Italian experience: we will bring you through some important linguistic structure, guide you around the funniest ways of saying, introduce you to the Italian culture and its most fascinating landmarks and we will show you some Italian cooking recipes by putting our hands into the ingredients of Italian cuisine!


Participation is for free and the only requirement is to have already a basic knowledge of Italian (ideally B1). Registrations are on a first-come, first served basis: we encourage you to register as soon as possible to ensure your place. We will release an attendance certificate for all the participants that will join both the sessions in Zoom.

 Please note that all times on the programme below are in CET.
