ART HISTORY COURSE IN TURIN

Turin, a city of Roman foundation, capital of the Baroque and then of the Liberty style, and today capital of design and venue of prestigious contemporary art museums, is the ideal destination to combine the study of the Italian language with the history of art.

Our art history courses aim to show, through video projections, insights and guided tours, the development of art in Italy with particular attention to its decline  in Piedmont.

The course represents a unique opportunity to learn and understand the evolution of the great artistic movements and the historical and social events that accompanied them.

"I had the opportunity to study at Ciao Italy for over a year to learn Italian and prepare for the B2 CILS exam. Due to lockdowns, I have been as yet unable to take the exam, but thanks to Ciao Italy, I now feel very confident in my speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I took the group intensive classes for many months and really enjoyed them, after which I switched to private tutoring which was also very helpful. I will recommend Ciao Italy in the future!"
