Istituto Venezia: Special Courses
These special courses are carried
out together with the standard program held in the mornings. The
classes will be taught in Italian, but many of the classes involve
hands on activity so if you have a basic knowledge of Italian will
suffice. They last two weeks and include afternoon laboratories
on the following themes:
Italian + Art
Students can apply to this course
only if they apply to the Italian intensive course held in the morning.
This course is held every afternoon
from Monday to Friday, two hours per class. Some lessons will be
held inside a class (slides will be shown together with other ludic-educational
activities), others will take place around the city.
Specific art itineraries will
be explored and studied, in order to discover a variety of masterpieces
as they are preserved in different architectural styles, from the
Byzantine age to neo-classicism, till contemporary art and architecture.
Dates are the same as the intensive courses.
Italian + Wine
The idea is to let the student
discover Italian wine. Four labs to explain and taste wines from
the most famous Italian regions: Tuscany, Piemonte, Sicily, Friuli
and of course Venetia, are held.
During these labs, students will
learn to recognize qualities and characteristics of different varieties
of wine, different production techniques of the most celebrated
In addition, a wine expert will
suggest perfect combinations with different dishes. Once a week,
students and the wine expert will gather in a Venetian wine cellar.
Italian + Cooking
A full immersion into Italian
culture and tradition.
These courses are carried out
exclusively together with the intensive courses in the morning.
They last two weeks and they include afternoon laboratories on various
themes. Labs will be held in Italian by experts.
