Nicola and Angela the founders of Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera
Nicola & Angela

The Centro Mediterraneo Pintadera was founded in 2004 for the purpose of furthering the Italian language and culture. Located in a quiet picturesque alley in the old town of Alghero in Sardinia, Pintadera is run by two dynamic women. Angela is from Alghero, whilst Nicola is a native of Berlin with a diverse international background.

Welcoming and relaxing, Pintadera offers the perfect atmosphere for learning the Italian language and gaining a unique insight into Sardinian culture. We take language out of the classroom and onto the streets of Alghero so that our students soon feel part of the community.

Alghero, considered by many to be the most fascinating town on the island, is situated on the northwest “Coral Coast” of Sardinia. The town was founded by the Genoese Doria family during the first half of the 12th century.  More


Sardinia is an island of extraordinary beauty. It lies in the heart of the Mediterranean off the west coast of mainland Italy and white sandy beaches adorn its 1,800 km coastline. The interior of the island features vast stretches of uncontaminated nature.  More


Italian schools for foreigners in Italy are an important resource for the country, not only for the promotion of the language but also culture, tourism, business and the “Italian brand” around the world. Pintadera is a founding member of the LICET Schools (Lingua Italiana, Cultura e Turismo) Association.  More
