Casa Italiana Cultural Center


We have been called a corner of authentic Italy in the heart of Washington, D.C., and for good reason! At Casa Italiana we believe learning the Italian language and culture should be fun. With courses designed to engage our students and let them learn effortlessly, Casa Italiana promises to deliver an experience beyond the basic process of learning.

Our Language Teachers

All instructors have extensive experience in teaching Italian as a second language. The primary objective of all courses is to encourage and develop speaking and comprehension skills. Our holistic approach to Italian instruction will give appropriate attention also to reading and writing skills.

Go beyond the language! Experience the culture, the customs, the history, and the stories that make La lingua Italiana such a fascinating tongue.

Cultural Courses

If you are looking for a stimulating and challenging way to perfect your language skills, let one of our experienced teachers guide you either through the world of Italian cinema or through the rich pages of the literary masterpieces that shaped Italy and its language.

Need to stimulate your mind with something other than learning the language? With courses like mosaic, majolica (the ancient art of ceramic pottery indigenous to Italy), cooking and wine tasting events, you can immerse yourself in the culture and history of Italy.
