About Piccola Università Italiana

The language school was founded in 1993 by Antonio Lamantea as "Caffè Culturale" as a place to learn Italian in a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
In those days Caffè Italiano Club provided this special ambience by use of classrooms that seemed more like a cafe. The language centre offered a place for interesting, stimulating conversations, cultural exchange and the familiar atmosphere guaranteed that language pupils of every nation and age felt good being there.The language and culture centre grew in popularity and it wasn't long before it was awarded with state-approval.

In 2004 the Italian language centre became state-approved by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. To emphasize the Italian language school's professionalism, the school was renamed and in 2004 became Piccola Universita Italiana. The name should reflect the language school's attributes.
