Colors

2018: our booklets have taken on color! And of course we could not forget our city, and its monuments.  Santa Croce, Battistero, Palazzo Vecchio – and coming soon: San Giovanni cathedral.  Four booklets, six levels, from A1 through C2, the whole Italian language grammar explained.

Just 50 minutes walk from home to work…

On the other side of the Railway Station Santa Maria Novella, the “Fortezza da Basso”, designed by Michelangelo as defense of the Florentine Republic, thousand times remodeled and redone, now home to most of the Pitti fairs
