Prof. Emanuele Occhipinti, Drew University

"In 2013 the Drew University, an American University located in New Jersey, began to collaborate with Study Programs in Italy, the Institute of Italian language and culture set in Orvieto. The competence, the courtesy and the rich experience showed by the entire staff (President, Director, secretary and faculty) ensured a memorable stay for all our students who partecipated enthusiastically in the lessons, the cultural activities, as well as the cooking and pottery courses, seminars and trips.

Drew will continue to offer its students the Italian summer program thanks to the success gained in the previous years and we are sure it will be another unforgettable experience."


Dana Renga – Program Director and Assistant Professor, Orvieto Semester, Colorado College (Colorado Springs, CO)

"Study Programs in Italy excels not only for the variety of courses it offers, for its professional staff and an innovative teaching methodology, but especially because it is just amazing to cooperate with this marvellous school. For two consecutives years the staff of Study Programs in Italy has been extremely helpful! Along with ours students they went through didactic teaching, grammar, conversation across the board, writing essays target for Universities.

In addition, each member of Study Programs in Italy should be recommended for her/his effort, commitment, enthusiasm and integrity."

"Study Programs in Italy has a great experience in offering excellent italian courses at all levels, but that's not all! It is also very flexible and available to cooperate with individual organizations to adapt the curriculum to their particular needs. I recommend Study Programs in Italy to all American Institutions seeking collaboration for the creation of Italian language programs in Italy."


Susan Ormont, Past-President, National Association of Teachers of Singing, New York Chapter, USA. Director, Opera Lirica (USA) Claudia Novack, Ph.D., American Repertory Theatre; Assistant Director, Opera Lirica (USA)

"Study Programs in Italy stands out precisely because of the flexibility of its proposal. Although the demand of our programs was totally different from their plan of study, Study Programs in Italy cope enthusiastically with us to create custom-cut courses fully satisfying our needs. They chose very carefully teachers suitable for our group, they went after our students closely three times a week to be sure we would have been fully satisfied. And, indeed, the most important thing is that all of our students have greatly improved their knowledge in understanding and speaking italian."
