Silvia Gilli, originally from Bologna but resident for many years in Copenhagen where she works at the Italian Institute of Culture, has organised a stay in Bologna for a group of students which will include a course of Italian at the Arca school.  Silvia is particularly fond of Bologna and has a deep knowledge of the area as an art historian and Italian teacher. She is also the Bologna Connect Ambassador and has already organised events at the Italian Institute of Culture in Copenhagen promoting the outstanding qualities of the Emilia Romagna region.

We look forward to welcoming Silvia and her students, who will certainly fall in love with Bologna and our language!
