In the Heart of Rome

Between Piazza Navona and Castel Sant'Angelo, in a seventeenth-century building on the Banco di Santo Spirito, the school faces a quaint piazza in the heart of the city. A meeting place between cultures, a place where past and present meet and mingle.


The teachers at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci are all native Italian speakers and graduates with specific training in teaching Italian to foreigners. They work with passion and commitment and bring to class daily all of their energy and creativity. Certified by the Board of Education, the teachers are always up to date with new didactic tools for teaching and participate in periodic refresher courses.
