IC Speaker Series
Learning Language and Culture in Italy
Mauro Faleri
6/2 Lunch @ Noon / Zoom @ 1pm

June 2 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

One can visit Italy, be guided as a tourist, or one can experience Italy. Mauro Faleri will speak about experiencing Italy at a deeper, more intimate level, that is, by living in daily contact with Italian people. Staying in Italy for some time and attending an Italian language school can open doors to much more than language—it can offer some unexpected gifts. Mauro’s talk will be abundantly illustrated with insights into life in Italy and Siena in particular. This presentation will take the form of an interview with Alex Kugushev, with an emphasis on Italian culture.

Mauro Faleri is the Director of Saena Iulia Italian Language School in Siena, Italy, which he co-founded thirty years ago. He is a Sienese of numerous generations from the area of Contrada della Torre. He graduated from the University of Florence in linguistics (studying Italian, English, Spanish) with an emphasis on English and American literature. He has traveled, studied and lived in Germany and Spain, and in his youth, he played semi-pro calcio (soccer).
