Join us for a Unique, Engaging, & Interactive Italian Language Lesson!

We will learn the translations as well as the history, origination, and the stories behind each song!

Pina is an Italian instructor at Scuola Italiana di Portland. She was born in the south of Italy, in Naples, but lived many years in Brescia, in the north. She earned her degree in nursing and practiced for over 25 years in the fields of psychiatry and psychology.

Her passion for the study of humanities lead her to go back to school where she graduated from the Università Degli Studi di Pavia with high honors in Italian Language and Literature, with a thesis of Latin Paleography on the handwriting of the poet Giacomo Leopardi. She have earned the DITALS (Certificate of proficiency in teaching Italian as a second language). Pina also loves music. She is a singer and guitarist and plays in different venues in and around Portland. She has performed for Italian Portland many times in the past! She has published two CDs of her Italian music Io sono qui, and Napoli in Love. We are very excited to have Pina putting on this dynamic and engaging language workshop!
