Program Description

Italian Language and Culture Summer School

Sapienza University of Rome

Learning Italian and getting to know Italian culture is one of the most rewarding features of coming to Sapienza. It's why we created the Sapienza Summer School, where students from all over the world can study and discover the many aspects of Italian literature, arts and cinema, whilst perfecting their language skills. Courses are taught by enthusiastic instructors who provide students with unique insights into the many facets of Italy.

Sapienza Summer School includes two independent and parallel courses, taught both in English and Italian, with a final assessment test. Both courses include guided visits to the most important monuments and artistic sites in the city.

Students need not, however, provide academic qualifications typically required for enrolment in degree programmes.


The Summer School organises a vast range of study visits. These normally include the following itineraries:

  • From the Forum of Augustus to the Basilica of St. Clemente
  • Palatine and Coliseum
  • Appian Way and Catacombs of S. Callisto
  • Pantheon, Navona Square, Church of St. Luigi dei Francesi
  • Palazzo Massimo Museum and Church of St. Maria degli Angeli
  • St. Peter's Basilica and Castel S. Angelo
  • Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel
  • Capitoline Hill, Jewish Ghetto and Tiber Island
  • Galleria Borghese and Borghese Park
  • MAXXI (National Museum of 21st Century Arts), Auditorium, Bridge of Music

Other visits and cultural events will be suggested for the weekends and for late afternoons and evenings.


Living costs (i.e., room and board) are not included in the tuition fees.

Sapienza Summer School has a special agreement with the "Casa dell'Aviatore" Residence that is just a 10-minute walk from the Summer School.
