Italian School

For over 30 years, Il Sasso Italian Language

has been running courses in Montepulciano, in the heart of Tuscany. The school offers Italian courses for speakers of other languages studying in small groups and individually. There are six different levels, corresponding to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Il Sasso also runs art history, wine, literature and current affairs courses, as well as courses to prepare students for the CELI and CILS exams. The school is recognised by the Italian Education Ministry. It is a medium sized school with a reputation for excellence, and is open all year round. Students of all ages come to study here from all over the world.

Il Sasso Scuola d'Italiano

Perfect for Studying

The Italian language school Il Sasso is located in Montepulciano, a beautiful, renaissance town that stands on a hill surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in southern Tuscany. The school was founded in 1983 by people who are still running it today and it is recognized by the Ministry of Public Education and in Sweden by the CSN.

Montepulciano, Toscana

In the Magical Panorama

For a great many reasons, Montepulciano in Tuscany, half way between Florence and Rome, is the ideal place for an Italian language school. It is located on the top of a hill, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves with one of those views which has made Tuscany famous the world over. The peace and quiet are ideal for a study holiday of Italian language far from bustling town centres.
