Il Venerdì

Italiano

In 2016 we launched a new project, "Il Venerdì Italiano" (Italian Friday), a series of cultural events around Italy held once or twice per month.

Choose the events that interest you from wine tastings, lectures, book presentations and film!

Here is the calendar of events for the school, which will be updated during the year.

Remember: the entry is free but it is better to reserve a seat at info@italiaperpassione.com

Concorso di scrittura
UNTIL 31 MARCH 2022

Following last year's success, this year we are once again organising a writing competition on a theme that concerns us all... THE CITY! We ask you to describe a city and leave you free to choose the one that is closest to your heart. Maybe it's the city you live in at the moment, Brussels, maybe it's your home town or the one in the countryside where you go on weekends, or the holiday town you went to when you were a child, or a city you simply carry in your heart for some reason. The city is made up of buildings, streets, bars, cinemas and theatres, but also of people, childhood friends and new friends, of sounds, voices, smells and sensations, without thinking about problems, traffic and pollution. If you would like to share a thought about your city with us, please send a one-page typed A4 description, without writing your name on the paper, by 31 March, to the school email: info@italiaperpassione.com. The competition is open to adults and children, but this time we have created two separate categories. The best adult story will be rewarded with a cooking workshop or two film courses; the prize for children and young people will be two books! Your stories will also be published on our blog page: https://lafinestraitaliana.wordpress.com/category/raccontiamo/ where you can now find some descriptions of imaginary cities taken from the book "Le Città Invisibili" by Italo Calvino, which we invite you to read in the hope that they will stimulate your imagination and your pen!
