The name Mangiaparole comes from Mangiafuoco – a character from Pinocchio’s book written by Carlo Collodi – the terrible puppeteer that our wooden friend meets during one of his many adventures. The love for this book, known all over the world and symbol of Italy inspired us to use it. 

The School

We offer individual and group courses, in-person and online for all ages and levels. In-person classes take place in Rome, Italy at the location established by the student (i.e.: companies, embassies, universities, religious congregations, private homes) or online, no matter where you are in the world.

Teachers and Staff

In addition to offering a healthy and respectful school climate, at our school you will be able to find high-quality teachers and reliable staff members. Our teachers are native Italian speakers, graduated and specialized in teaching Italian as a second language. They have extensive experience working with students of all ages and nationalities. They are prepared to understand student’s cultural differences and help them succeed.
