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. Throughout the pandemic, I ventured into the world of online Italian classes, and now, as part of the Mangiaparole team, I’m thrilled to bring my expertise both virtually and in-person. Let’s set embark on this exciting linguistic adventure together!

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 had the opportunity to teach Italian at the Embassy of Israel in Rome, as well as in various convents and other esteemed religious institutions.

Whenever I get the chance, I go on a trip, whether it’s near or far from Rome. I love learning about new cultures, trying different foods, and seeing beautiful places. It’s like going on exciting adventures and discovering amazing things!

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