We plan on returning for another course.”

Studying Italian Art Crafts in Italy Student Experiences

Ester completed an Italian Course in Milan (August 2018)

"It was my first time signing up for a course with Studiainitalia, but certainly not the last. The Italian lessons were very dynamic and productive. Not only did I learn the language but also the culture! The teachers were charming and supportive, the school was in the city center, and the accommodation was great! One of my best experiences!".

Trini completed an Italian Course in Rome (August 2018)

"My Italian learning experience in Rome was very enriching. The teaching method communicative, the lessons interesting and a great program of cultural activities. Studiainitalia’s management was great, Federica’s tips are priceless. 100% Recommended".

Evelyn completed two art courses, Painting & Gilding, in Florence (June 2018)

"The oil painting course was a wonderful experience. My teacher was patient, helpful and with her guidance, I expanded my oil painting skills beyond expectations. The gilding course was a rewarding experience. My teacher had over 35 years of gilding practice learning the art from her father and has restored historic works from famous collections. This is evident in her teaching. The Studiainitalia staff and management were extremely helpful and very accommodating. This, combined with the stay in the marvelous city of Florence, have made my study experience in Italy a remarkable experience".

Soledad completed the Leather Shoemaking Craft Course in Florence (March 2018)

"My teacher was passionate, and patient, explaining every detail step by step. The experience gave me so much knowledge and small details that I had never imagined, it made me understand and value how difficult and beautiful this trade is. Also, thank you Federica for all your help and guidance".

homestay italy

Homestay in Italy

If you want to study in Italy and are looking into accommodation options, a homestay is definitely worth thinking about. Whether you are traveling to learn Italian or to attend a course of a different kind (art, craft, cooking, restoration), living in the home of an Italian family teaches you so much more than the language. In fact, by staying with an Italian host family you can eat, sleep and breathe the Italian culture. It is a full-immersion life experience.

italian host family homestay study abroad

At Studiainitalia we offer a variety of accommodation options, including independent flats, hotels and family stays. Our students who opted for homestays all agree on the fact that their language acquisition would not be nearly as strong if they had not lived with an Italian host family.

Why is it so effective? Because you must practice Italian at home and avoid the temptation to speak to other students in your native language. Even if you don’t talk much, you will be exposed to the chatter of the Italian TV in the background, the conversations between family members, and other little things of everyday life that will improve your language skills.


What to expect from living with an Italian Family?

When signing up for a homestay through Studiainitalia, your Italian host family offers you:

  • Bed in a private or shared room
  • WiFi connection
  • Upon request, the possibility to have breakfast and dinner as part of your homestay
  • Access to laundry
  • An authentic Italian experience, beautiful memories and new friends, as you will treasure your connection with the family when you leave.

If you would like to improve your Italian studies outside the classroom in a warm, welcoming social setting, a homestay in Italy is ideal for you. Contact us if you have any questions or would like to know more about our registered, approved Italian hosts.

Are you looking to experience a Summer Camp in Tuscany to learn Italian while having fun and expanding your cultural horizons? Whether you are a teenager searching for the perfect summer school or a parent looking for the best language camp for your kids, this article is for you. After a careful selection of schools and programs in Tuscany, Studiainitalia recommends Orbetello as the best choice for your Summer Camp in Italy. Here is why.


Destination - Orbetello: Great Location, Safe, Beautiful

Orbetello is a small town that lies in the middle of the namesake lagoon, which is a WWF Nature Reserve, in the southern area of Tuscany known as Maremma. It can be easily reached with a 90-minute drive from Rome Fiumicino International Airport and a 2-hour drive from Pisa Galileo Galilei Airport. It also has a train station (Stazione Orbetello-Monte Argentario) that connects Orbetello to Civitavecchia and Rome in the south, and to Grosseto and Livorno in the north.

Young people who choose Orbetello for their Italian summer camp are surprised by the vibrant atmosphere that can be found here between June and August. In fact, there are regattas in the lagoon, food festivals in the neighbouring sea villages, art and culture events in and around town, the antiques market on the first weekend of every month. With a 20-minute bicycle ride along a panoramic bike path you can reach some of the most pristine beaches in Tuscany. In the evening, locals hang out on the “corso” (main street) for an aperitivo or dinner with friends. The tranquil and safe character of Orbetello is a crucial factor for most parents who are looking for the best summer study abroad experience in Italy.

Not only is Orbetello safe and lively, it is also a beautiful town with an important history. For example, in the 16th century it became the capital of the State of the Presidi under the Crown of Spain. Also, the town was the starting point for Italo Balbo’s famous air cruises between 1930 and 1933. There are many curious things about the local history that students will enjoy learning when living in Orbetello.

italy new year tradition

Curious New Year’s Traditions in Italy

Italians are known for being quite superstitious. The night of San Silvestro (New Year’s Eve) offers the perfect occasion to perform some traditional rites that are meant to bring about good fortune.


Eat lentils and grapes

Eating lentils at midnight brings good luck. This custom has different origins. According to some, these legumes symbolize longevity because they are long-lasting. For others, lentils are a symbol of prosperity because they resemble ancient gold coins. Another thing you should do when midnight strikes, is to eat 12 grapes or 12 raisins (one for each month of the new year), to bring you luck. If you are accompanied by your partner, share a pomegranate on the night of San Silvestro, because this fruit symbolizes loyalty and fertility.

grape new year italy

Wear red undergarments

On New Year’s Eve, you’re supposed to wear something red (usually underwear) because this will fend off negativity and will help you with happiness and love. The origins of this tradition are unclear, but some believe that it dates back to the ancient Romans, who would use red clothes to fend off war and blood. But for this superstition to work, your red underwear must be new and a gift from someone else. If you buy your own or wear some old red lingerie, you are cheating!

Throw old things from the window

This custom is still alive in different parts of Italy, including large cities like Naples and Rome. At midnight, some Italians throw out the window old things (usually crockery). This ritual symbolizes that you let go of what is useless and that you get rid of evil (physical and moral) accumulated during the year, to make room for a fresh start.

Kiss under a mistletoe

Although this is something that is mostly done on Christmas day, repeating the kiss on New Year’s Eve won’t do any harm. The mistletoe is a symbol of protection and love, so the kiss is meant to drive away evil spirits and help a couple. The ancient pagan origins can be traced back to the Druids, and this tradition is present in other countries too.

christmas tradition italy

The first person you meet on the street after midnight …

Curious to know if the new year will be mostly positive or so-so? One of the most ancient customs in Italy is to observe the first person that you meet on the street on Capodanno (New Year’s Day). If it is an old person or (even better) a hunchback, the new year will be full of great surprises. If you meet a baby, a priest or a doctor – according to tradition there might be some bad luck around the corner. The reasons behind this superstition are not clear.

Learn Italian in Venice: 5 secret sights

It is easy to see why Venice is one of the most visited and loved cities in the world, thanks to its beautiful ancient buildings, museums and charming canals. And away from the itineraries of mass tourism, you can find more surprising wonders. If you have decided to learn Italian in Venice, we have 5 lesser-known sights where you can escape the crowds, enjoy the scene and even find inspiration to do some homework and study the beautiful language.


Libreria Acqua Alta

Run by eccentric Venetian Luigi Frizzo, this library is home to hundreds of books, both new and used. The books are chaotically stacked in old gondolas, canoes, and bathtubs. You will also find a staircase made from old, colourful books. Cats are some of the regular visitors at Libreria Acqua Alta. The library is located off the beaten path near the Chiesa di Santa Maria Formosa.


Venice Ghost Walking Tour

You can discover the mysteries of Venice at night with a 1.5-hour walking tour. It takes you on a journey to the city’s hidden corners, with a ghost-expert guide who recounts spooky ghost stories and other legends as you walk. Recoil at gruesome facts about Biasio, the murderous butcher of Venice; see the reputedly haunted Bovolo staircase; explore the shadowy squares and empty streets as you hear more sinister tales!

Forte Sant’Andrea

This beautiful fort is located on Isola di Sant’Andrea, an island that is lesser known compared to the famous Murano and Burano. The 17th-century fort was built to defend the city from its enemies, and was the work of architect Michele Sanmicheli, who designed a number of civil and military buildings throughout the Venetian Republic. The top of the Island’s scruffy ruins makes for an excellent picnic spot with unrivalled views over the lagoon and city.

Also known as “Venezia in piccolo”, Chioggia is a less touristy version of its famous neighbour Venice. It provides you with a tranquil getaway with arched bridges and narrow canals. You will not find much art here, but the town is ideal for a nice day trip when Venice is overcrowded. Choose one of its seafood restaurants and imagine that Venice might have looked like Chioggia had it not discovered the riches of trade.

Malefatte Boutique

This shop, whose name translates as “misdeeds boutique”, sells products made with recycled PVC by prisoners from the jails in and around Venice. Here you will find handmade goods that go from t-shirts to notebooks and bags. The shop is a non-profit initiative run by Rio Tera dei Pensieri, a work-in-jail cooperative that offers prisoners training and professional rehabilitation.
