School & Philosophy
Founded in 1985, the Centro Studi Italiani is the first school for foreigners in the Marche region. Since its foundation, the school has provided lessons in Italian language and culture to more than 17,000 students from all over the world. The school also has branches in Milan and Genoa.
The Urbania school is located in the heart of the historic center of the town, in a building dating back to the 1600s. Bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks and all services are within a few minutes walking distance. In the building there are numerous classes, several rehearsal rooms with piano, an artistic workshop and an inner courtyard. The whole building is covered by the wifi network. The historical library is just a few meters away and all students have free access to the library services.
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.
Located between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea, Urbania is historically known as a place of artistic and cultural interest. From Ubania you can reach the most famous Italian cities of art such as Rome, Florence, Urbino and Siena. Urbania is a valid alternative to the cities invaded by mass tourism. In Urbania it is easy to make friends with the locals and practice the language.
