Hello everyone! I’m Luigi. I graduated in Modern Languages ​​and Literatures (Spanish and Portuguese) at the Sapienza University of Rome. I have been teaching Italian and Spanish for more than 10 years.

Since I started working for Mangiaparole, I have been teaching online and in-person classes in Rome, both individual and group lessons, I teach the Italian for driver’s license (IDL) course helping many students to pass the theory test for the Italian patente B.

After I graduated, I specialized in the communicative method at the Dilit International House in Rome. I obtained the II level DITALS – Certification of Competence in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language at the University for Foreigners of Siena and the DELE – Certification for Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.

I taught Italian in private schools, universities, embassies and companies. From 2010 to 2017, I taught Italian at the Pontifical Faculty of Education Auxilium in Rome. I worked with Prolingua School specialized in teaching Italian to religious students coming to Rome from all over the world. Since 2018 I have been teaching at the Embassy of the United States of America in Rome. Alongside teaching Italian, I also work as a translator to and from Spanish.

In my free time I am passionate about rock music, cinema, football but most importantly I cultivate my love for… pasta!!!

My favorite dish is: pasta!

Interesting fact: I am a history buff. In 2017 I published the historical novel “Rosso Sarajevo” which tells the sad events that took place during the Bosnian war between 1992 and 1996.
