Welcome to LINGUA IT

AN ITALIAN SCHOOL IN ITALY

LINGUAIT is based in the Volpini-Jenna Palazzo, a historic palace which was built in the renaissance and then refurbished in the 18th century.

It’s one of the most beautiful buildings in Verona’ historic centre, with a great harmony between its grand doorway, impressive entrance hall and the Doric columns which lead to an elegant courtyard decorated with allegorical statues. Inside the school itself, however, you will find an up-to-date, modern and welcoming environment with everything you need to learn a language in comfort. The classrooms are spacious and full of natural light, providing a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere for studying.

We seek to offer our students classes which meet their needs and to offer a comfortable and quiet environment for study.
