C.L.I. Dante Alighieri - Roma

Piazza Bologna, 1
162 Roma,  
  • The School

    The Rome Language Centre of the Dante Alighieri group was opened in 1981 and specialises in the teaching of Italian language and culture to foreign students. The main school was set up in Florence in 1966 and today the Centro Linguistico Italiano Dante Alighieri has a number of other centres also in Greece. The school has authorisation from the Education Ministry and is open all year round.

    The Centre

    The Rome centre is housed in a stylish turn of the century building, at 1 Piazza Bologna. It is within easy reach of the city centre and all other areas, amply served by Underground Line B and many bus routes. The classrooms are large and bright and there is a terrace which, in spring, summer and autumn, becomes a meeting-place for students during breaks. All the classrooms are climatized.

    The Staff

    Our staff is on hand to provide information or help students with any problem.

    Giulia Savona, Head of Administration, has twenty years' experience with CLI and handles general management.

    Fabrizio Fucile, Head of Studies, has taught Italian and Latin since 1990, with a specialist interest in Italian Studies in which he gained his research doctorate and as well as handling management of studies, co-ordinates relations with oversea teaching institutes.

    Elena Lachin is Head of Student Services.

    Teaching Staff, Methods and Course-Books

    Members of the Danti Alighieri CLI teaching staff are all humanities graduates and have followed teacher training courses in the teaching of Italian as a second language, organised by the school. They keep abreast of new teaching concepts, methods and tools.

    The method adopted by the teachers is the communicative grammar method. Each lesson is structured in two parts: in the first, morpho-syntactical structures are presented and written and oral exercises immediately assess the individual student's level of understanding and reproduction. In the second part, the student learns to apply the new linguistic structures in the most varied situations from the colloquial to the more formal and bureaucratic, broadens his personal vocabulary and practices using the idiomatic expressions of spoken Italian.

    Course-books have been developed from years of experience and successful teaching methods used at the school: the books are the result of co-operation between language specialists and teachers themselves who have a more direct experience of the problems and needs of the students. The CLI Dante Alighieri course-books are used also by European and American schools and universities.


  • group courses 


    The courses progress through different levels (elementary, intermediate and higher), from level A1 to level C2 according to Global Scale of European Portfolio.

    Courses may be followed from a minimum of one week. Lessons are held from Monday to Friday and last 55 minutes.

    Groups are limited to a maximum of 10-13 students.  The limited class size and regular practice make it possible for teachers to follow the whole class individually, monitor daily progress and so obtain excellent results in a short time.

    individual courses

    With an individual course, the student has the chance to tailor the course to fit his needs and attain excellent results in a very short time. Such courses are particularly suited to the needs of executives, managers, diplomats, professionals, artists and university Professors and researchers.

    Highly-qualified teachers and a carefully planned syllabus are the keys to success which make students come back and recommend us to others.

    The timetable for individual courses is drawn up to fit in with the student's schedule. Weekend courses are also available.

    With courses D8, D10 and S9 (inclusive of dinner with the teacher in select restaurants) a good level of language may be reached in only two or three weeks.
