School & Philosophy
Founded in 1985 in Urbania (Regione Marche), Centro Studi Italiani is an Italian language and culture school for international students. In 2018 Centro Studi Italiani acquired “Scuola Tricolore”. The school, situated in the heart of Genoa, is one of the most important and prestigious italian language school in Liguria. The school also has branches in Urbania and Milano.
Centro Studi Italiani offers all levels of language courses as well as group and individual, online and customized. Centro Studi Italiani is also a partner of prestigious international universities offering academic and non-academic courses in Italy. The programs are therefore flexible, adaptable, varied, rich and unique. Classes are intentionally small to allow students to best relate to each other while enjoying personalized and individual attention from teachers.
Our fundamental criterion when teaching is to put the student at the center of our attention. Our teaching methods are carefully selected by adapting them, on a case-by-case basis, to our needs and our educational objectives. Our teaching strategy is therefore flexible, adaptable and creative. We guarantee each student individual attention during the course.
The philosophy is to create a study center in a pleasant and enjoyable environment. Therefore our teaching method, as well as the selection of teachers, is aimed at emphasizing and supporting this philosophy. You will be pleasantly surprised!

It has 5 new classrooms and a separate relaxation room where you can drink coffee, read a newspaper, borrow a book from our extensive library or chat with classmates.
