Thanks to its rich history and strategic position, Trento offers a unique gateway into Italian culture. Our Trento summer school in Italian Language and Culture, organized by the Department of Humanities, provides a two-week full immersion in Italian literature, language, history, archaeology, art, music, and cinema.
Combining lectures, seminars, conversations, urban itineraries, cultural trips and outdoor activities, the programme welcomes international students from a variety of disciplinary fields who seek to enrich their academic curriculum and personal growth.
Participants are encouraged to develop their cultural knowledge, heighten their cultural awareness, and constantly question widespread cultural stereotypes upon Italy and the Italian culture.
