You have been studying Italian for some time and are quite comfortable carrying on conversations on a large variety of topics but perhaps you are ready for something a bit more challenging to continue to improve your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of Italian grammar – not to mention insight into Italian culture. Reading consistently will help boost your confidence, so if you are ready for the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin!

You will be asked to read a certain number of pages every week at home and once a week, you will “videomeet” with your classmates and instructor for discussions, clarifications, explanations, etc. — all in Italian of course!

This mini session is different from our regular ones because it is very short and the book chosen is proportionately brief.

If you need assistance to determine if this class is right for you, we would be happy to help. Please get in touch!

Montedidio: trama del libro
(Source: Librinews)

“Chi salirà nel monte di Dio? Chi ha le mani innocenti e il cuore puro.” Un quartiere di vicoli a Napoli: Montedidio. Un ragazzo di tredici anni va a bottega da Mast’Errico, il falegname. E’ l’inizio della sua vita nuova, la vita che a sera, a casa, in una casa vuota per l’assenza del padre e per la malattia della madre, il ragazzo va scrivendo su una bobina di carta avuta in regalo dal tipografo di Montedidio. Ha anche un altro regalo, che porta sempre con sé, un “bùmeran”, un legno nato per volare che il padre ebbe a sua volta da un marinaio di passaggio. Così passano i giorni: Mast’Errico gli insegna il mestiere e Don Rafaniello, uno scarparo che Mast’Errico tiene ospite a bottega, gli insegna a pensare sugli uomini e sulle cose.
