DOLCE VITA PROGRAM IN ROME

DOLCE VITA PROGRAM IN ROME

Study Italian in Florence

We know that the term ‘Dolce Vita’ and all it refers to originates from the marvelous and iconic film directed by the famed Federico Fellini, set in Rome, and spearheaded by actors Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Eckberg.

Rome was the perfect setting for a film dedicated to the ‘sweet life’ for the way in which Romans to this day appreciate the serendipity of carrying out their daily lives against the backdrop of the Grande Bellezza. This course was initially conceived exclusively for students older than 50 years old, but given the high level of success the course quickly garnered, we now recommend this course to all of our students regardless of age.

This film has coined our contemporary understanding of the ‘Dolce vita’ as a specific lifestyle defined for being carefree, light-hearted, and classically Italian.
One can learn to live ‘La Dolce Vita’ in any city, not just Rome. Don’t we all want to experience the joy of sharing carefree moments with dear friends? Yet still, if there is any one city that would be the perfect classroom for the Dolce vita, where one can be immersed in fully experiencing this carefree lifestyle and retrace the film’s iconic sites and monuments–that city would be Rome. And now the opportunity to do so is yours through our school’s Dolce Vita course based in the heart of Rome.

In the real-life stage set of Rome, you will “be on stage” as the protagonist of your own life story. To support you, we have our talented teachers of Italian language and art history, cooks and wine experts, directors who will lead you through iconic scenes, and famous paparazzi who will tell you real stories referenced by the film.
And because we Romans like to overdo it, the course even includes a lecture by a photographer who will teach you how to best immortalize your own memories. We have thought of everything through this course to help you to more joyfully experience the city of Rome to the fullest.
