Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website. My passion for sharing my culture began 15 years ago but had its beginning at birth. Mia mamma, my mom, was an Italian immigrant from Naples, Italy.
My interest in perfecting my Italian language skills led me to the Department of Italian Studies at Indiana University. While earning my degree in Italian, I also studied at L’Università di Bologna in Bologna, Italy. Following graduation (with a dual degree in telecommunications), I started a 25-year career as a Television Sports Anchor/Reporter. I have made frequent visits to Italy over the last 25 years, hosting group tours of the beautiful country while staying at the homes of my relatives.
I retired from the TV business in 2002 and focused my passion on all things Italian. After developing a curriculum that includes language and culture, I was ready to begin sharing my knowledge of “la vita Italiana." My classes are fun and stress-free. We laugh, learn and, of course, eat and sip a little vino! It's the best way to prepare for your vacation and reconnect with your Italian heritage.
Grazie mille, thank you very much, for visiting my website.
A presto, see you soon. Roberto
