Our school in Florence, Centro Machiavelli, founded in 1978 is recognised by the Italian Education Ministery and it is characterized by is the care and attention with which staff members treat each and every course participant, coping with their needs and trying to satisfy their expectations. The atmosphere is cheerful and informal. The school is located in the historic centre of Florence, in the neighborhood known as Santo Spirito, where artisans and artists keep working outside the traditional mass-circuits. Santo Spirito still keeps intact its economic and social character. Piazza Santo Spirito is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful squares in the city, as well as a meeting place for Florentines. The school organizes 2 social activities a week, some are free and others not which take place outside normal lesson time. There are books and movies available from the school library which can be used by students in the afternoon.

    La gestión de studiainitalia no ha podido ser mejor. Estoy encantada con el curso de italiano que estoy cursando, en mi caso, en la escuela Machiavelli de Florencia. Una escuela óptima donde aprender además de fácil es divertido. Las clases son dinámicas y amenas y el personal un encanto.

    Dear Lara,
    I had my last Italian lesson today. I am very happy indeed with everything about the school. The location is excellent in one of the prettiest and quietist so squares. The secretary, Helen was outstandingly helpful in all practical matters.
    My teacher Vincenza was exceptional. She was highly engaging, skilled and experienced. All the class greatly enjoyed her teaching and said on many occasions how much they appreciated her. I have a lifetime’s experience in the UK education system, including work as as Ofsted inspector and would find it hard to suggest any area for improvement. I am sure the school know how lucky they are to have her but please could you make sure this email reaches the management of the school.
    All good wishes, Venetia, UK

    Sencillamente mágico el tiempo que he permanecido en Italia con Studiainitalia, realizando el curso de Italiano, fue una experiencia inolvidable, los profesores muy agradables y pacientes, haciendo más fácil mi adaptación al nuevo idioma y a la ciudad, la infraestructura cómoda, céntrica y el material didáctico muy oportuno para el aprendizaje; agradezco a Federica su orientación en cada uno de los pasos del proceso debido a que vivo en Venezuela y desde acá es un poco más difícil por el tema de la aprobación de las divisas; asimismo agradezco su gentileza durante mi estadía en Firenze; el alojamiento fue perfecto para mi con una familia italiana, super agradable y cercana.
    Quienes quieran aprender este idioma Italiano y vivir una super experiencia consigo mismo!!! Estudiainitalia es una excelente oportunidad!!! Mil gracias!!! AKAA

    riassumo in cinque parole: è stato una autentica delizia!!! No tengo palabras para describir la bondad y gentileza de Maurizio y Simonetta, las clases y el “congiuntivo, fantásticos, y el ambiente que he respirado con Benedetta, la profe, y los compañeros, entrañable. Han sido dos semanas de auténtico piaccere. Creo que volveré otra vez. Y de vosotros, qué decir! sois unos auténticos profesionales que destiláis cariño y buen hacer.
