(Language of workshop: English; Examples in Italian)
I believe Italian language and culture offer us an opportunity to experience quality of life. I am very interested in the development of the potential and talent that each human being has, and I like to give a true meaning to the word "educare" (to educate, to teach; from the Latin "ex-ducere", to bring out). The best educational experience is the one that allows each person/student to express (bring out) the best of him/herself.
