CILS certificate 2020

The University of Siena has added new dates for the CILS (Certificate of Italian as a Second Language) exam and Pintadera is offering special preparatory courses.

Our Cultura courses

Our Cultura program offers close encounters with Sardinian culture. The "Centenarians" investigates why Sardinia is home to one of the 5 worldwide blue zones which are areas where people live much longer than average.
"Is Atlantis in Sardinia?" explores the theory of the lost city of Atlantis being located in Sardinia. Plato described the kingdom of Atlas "an island larger than Libya and Asia, whose inhabitants were tower builders." What do you think?

Accredited by the University of Foreigners of Siena as an authorized examination center for the CILS certificate.
