Hi everyone, my name is Silvano! I have extensive experience teaching Italian as a second language at all levels of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). I teach to people of all ages and with the most diverse learning needs. During the pandemic I started teaching Italian classes online and today I work for Mangiaparole teaching both online and in person.

I received my training at the Torre di Babele school in Rome and later on I obtained the II level DITALS certification at the University for Foreigners of Siena. I’m CILS and PLIDA examiner.

I have experience tutoring. In addition, I taught Italian at the Embassy of Israel in Rome and in several convents and other religious institutions.

In my spare time: I really like reading and hiking. As soon as I get the chance, I go on a trip, no matter if it is near or far from Rome. I love discovering new cultures, foods and landscapes.

My favorite dish: first courses, all kinds of risottos and pastas!
