Sapienza Summer School in Italian Language and Culture

Italian Language and Culture Summer School targets foreign students and it focuses on Italian language and culture.  The Summer School exploits the extraordinary cultural heritage of Rome and its surrounding territory, and will consist of a series of conferences, language and cultural courses, and guided visits to the most important monuments and artistic sites of the city.
Programme structure
The course consists of two independent parallel courses, one taught entirely in Italian, the other taught entirely in English, both with a final assessment test.
Each track includes both lectures on different topics (ranging from Roman archaeology and history, music, literature to art, cinema, fashion, etc.) and language classes.
No prior knowledge of Italian is required for students enrolling in the English-taught course; language classes are suited to complete beginners and will cover the very basics of the Italian language. 
Students are required to total a minimum 75% attendance at the Summer School to receive an attendance certificate and the 5 ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System) in the relative field as per the rules and regulations of the Bachelors and Masters programmes.
