Get close to the Bella Lingua and Bella Vita of Italy without leaving Manhattan

At Collina Italiana (CI), we offer Italian language and culture programs both on- and off-site. Lovers of Italian language and culture soon discover that CI classes offer a unique opportunity for a comprehensive learning experience without leaving the city.

Located on the Upper East Side at 1556 Third Avenue (near the 4, 5 & 6 trains at 86th Street), our language and cultural center is known for offering Italian classes in a contemporary setting, including workshops in both Italian wine and books. Depending on the time of your class, you'll be served either cappuccino or sparkling Prosecco while learning the bella lingua and the bella vita of Italy.

We offer year-round group and private lessons, tutoring services, specialty classes for adults and children's programming, such as Teatro Italiano and Make an Italian Show: language through drama classes where children can bring their stories on stage. For adults our Language Intensive Workshop, an intensive language and culture program, prepares you in Italiano for both business and pleasure. Registration for adult and children’s groups and individual classes is ongoing.

Collina Italiana director, Patrizia Saglio, welcomes you to a unique language program in an authentic Italian setting in which you'll learn the Italian spoken today and discover the contemporary culture of Italy through the culinary arts, wine, film, lectures, conversation, outings, and more.
