The Founders

Trasimeno Italian Speak Teachers 
Are all graduates and native speakers certified to teach language.

One of our founders was the President of Dante Allighieri in South Africa with more than 10 years teaching experience in Italy and abroad.


Let me tell you about me. I have a Master’s degree in teaching Italian to Non-native Speakers from University for Foreigners in Perugia, Italy. While finishing my thesis, I worked as an Italian Modern Language Fellow at Susquehanna University (PA) in the academic year 2010/2011. From November 2015 to February 2019 I moved in South Africa, where I was a teacher of Italian and German for two years at Società Dante Alighieri in Pietermaritzburg and then I became the President.


I really enjoy travelling and teaching around the world (when no Coronavirus is around), I love to play guitar and sing, I love listening to music and I read a lot of books!


I have also a big family… but for now it’s enough, otherwise you are not going to ask me those things in Italian during our lessons!


In fact, I would like you to speak as much as possible in Italian during our lessons
