Live and Learn Italian

Via Vittorio Alfieri, 1, 86081 Agnone IS, Italy



The birth place of my grandfather!

Agnone is famous for – La Pontificia Fonderia Marinelli - the bell foundry working here since 1040AD!

It’s the oldest surviving family business in the western world, and my grandfather’s first cousins.

Learning Italian here myself, I was inspired to create this programme:

A medieval town, off the beaten track, a community eager to share long standing traditions – gastronomic, cultural and artistic.

This is not a language school, it is an experience!

  • discover family run businesses producing excellent cheeses, salamis, olive oil, honey, wine and other regional specialities.
  • with no foreign tourism - the Agnonese are keen to engage with us – to cook, and to share traditions and history of their town.
  • in Alto-Molise, in the Provincia di Isernia, between Abruzzo and Puglia.
  • 850 m above sea level, Agnone in the summer stays fresh and cool, the local population is around 2000.
  • summer months are very festive - with Italian visitors and families returning from the cities.
