I have always been passionate about the Italian language. That is the reason why, after my university education in Italian Linguistics in Rome, I specialised in teaching Italian to non-native speakers and I taught Italian in the Netherlands for 6 years, first in Enschede and then in Groningen. I worked for several language schools and started my own Italian school organising classes and also language immersions in Abruzzo.
With fond memories of the Netherlands and a wider wealth of experience, I decided to continue this journey back in Italy and to invest in the region I love: Abruzzo.
In today’s frenetic world I made a crosscurrent choice. I decided to live in a place whose richness lies in the diversity of flora, fauna and nature; in the cultural heritage; in the precious traditions passed down from generation to generation; in the power of small communities.
Now I live in L’Aquila where I opened my own school for learning Italian. The school is located in the heart of L’Aquila, in Palazzo Chiarizia: a beautiful building from the 16th century, recently renovated.
Gentilmente School is a place where you can immerse yourself in the Italian culture, get in touch with the local community and feel free to experiment with the Italian language.
A place where you can feel at home and learn Italian in a relaxing environment.
