In the Beginner level of our Italian course, Pino (Pinocchio - a traditional character in Italian culture), realizes that his "good friends" the Cat and Fox are not really good friends. But what is friendship after all?


In the Intermediate level, Pino and the Talking Cricket travel through Italy to meet famous people (Rossini, Fellini, Michelangelo, Leonardo...) and ask them what friendship is.


In this Advanced level, Pino wants to become rich and famous, even though he doesn't know what to do in life. But what is life after all?

He meets famous Italian people (Dante, Ferrari, Galileo...) and asks them how to become rich, happy and famous.
