Center Studi Italiani

The Center for Italian Studies “BABILONIA” in Taormina, Sicily, passionately dedicates itself to the study of the Italian language and culture.

BABILONIA is not just a language school, but a truly Cultural Center open to both our International Students and the local community.

The cultural events that take place at BABILONIA represent a unique opportunity for our International students to feel part of the Italian community, to experience cultural exchanges with Italy’s cultural richness, to meet literary authors during our book presentations, to enjoy the visual arts during our painting and photograph exhibitions, to enjoy live classical and jazz concerts in our school garden, “I Giardini di Babilonia”…

“Casa Silva”, the historical house where our Center is located, is in the heart of Taormina: 200 meters away from the Greek Theater along the beautiful staircase of Scalinata Timoleone. At “Casa Silva” our students enjoy 1000 square meters of botanical garden with lemon, orange, tangerine, grapefruit trees, palm trees and other Mediterranean plants. The garden is part of the archaeological area of Taormina.

BABILONIA offers group and private Italian language courses as well as Culture courses (literature, history, art history, cinema), extra courses (cooking, ceramics, diving, hiking, etc.) and Italian for special purposes (business, commercial correspondence, CELI exam preparation) for all levels (from absolute beginners to C2 level according to the Common European Framework for Languages).

For U.S. university students our school offers Semester programs and Short term programs for undergraduate and graduate students, including Italian language courses as well as art history, literature, cinema, history, geology, archaeology, politics and humanities courses, taught in either Italian or English. Students may directly transfer credits into their home universities or earn US university credits through our accrediting universities in the U.S.A.
