Courses of Italian Language & Tastes of Casentino

News from Casentino

permit the translation of texts which are not too difficult.

The method used is first of all the reading and comprehension of sentences and short passages in latin, in order to arrive at the learning and formulation of the underlying grammatical rules, gaining in this way the fundamental elements of latin culture and literature.

The Course

The Course lasts for one week with a total of 20 lessons.

The lessons are held every morning  from Monday to Friday in the school building.

The four daily lessons, each one lasting 50 minutes, begin at 9.00 a.m. with an interval of 30 minutes after the first two lessons.

No previous knowledge of latin is required, but some preparation in the basic principles of Italian is necessary.


During the stay in Poppi, the guests of the C.C.I.C. have the possibility of choosing among a vast range of accomodations, in the historic center or in the immediate vicinity.

The participants may stay with an Italian family, lodge in a single or double room in an apartment of 2-3 rooms to be shared with other students, occupy an entire apartment alone or with friends and family, stay in a farm house in the beautiful Casentino countryside or in one of the hotels located in Poppi.

The secretary at the C.C.I.C. will supply, upon request, information, lists and prices of the rooms, available apartments, farm houses and hotels where it is possible to stay, and will take care of any reservations.

A tavola con gli insegnanti

During their stay at Poppi the students enjoy lunch and dinner together with their teachers in typical Casentino restaurants. These convivial moments give the students an opportunity to savour the gastronomic specialities of Casentino; to practise their conversation and to deepen their knowledge of spoken Italian.

Approfondimenti culturali

In the afternoons it is possible to take part in excursions together with our teachers so that students can appreciate the very significant local history and culture. These outings include a visit to Poppi and other medieval villages with their parish churches and castles. The monasteries of Camaldoli and La Verna are of particular importance where one can feel immersed in the spirituality they offer. Also included is a visit to Arezzo to see the frescoes of Piero della Francesca.

Cucinare insieme

With the help of a local expert cook and, in a family atmosphere, the students take part in the preparation of typical Tuscan specialities.
The resulting dishes are subsequently savoured by the students, accompanied by teachers and friends.

Free afternoon

During the afternoons when no school activity is scheduled, students can deepen their knowledge of Casentino by visiting local architectural and historic masterpieces and also museums in Florence (40 kilometres away). It is also possible to enjoy trips through the National Park of the Casentino Forests whose centuries-old woodlands offer the opportunity to admire and enjoy the splendid colours of a still-intact nature.
