Contentoitaliano is a place where people can learn about the Italian language and culture.
The word “contento” in Italian means “happy” or “content”. The word “italiano” can mean both the Italian language and an Italian person. The Italian word “contento” also reminds us of the word “content”, meaning material or information around Italy and the Italian language.
When we came up with the idea of contentoitaliano, we wanted to pick a name that would capture everything that we aim to do:
- We aim to help people to learn more about different aspects of the Italian culture
- We aim to help people who would like to learn the Italian language
- We aim to help people who would like to go on holiday to Italy, buy a holiday home or move to Italy for retirement
- We aim to answer your questions about Italy
The story of contentoitaliano
My name is Federica, I was born in Rome and grew up in Marche, a region in central Italy, near the Adriatic sea. At the age of 18, I decided to leave Italy to move to the UK.
Since then, I did a Bachelor’s degree, a Master’s degree and a PhD, and I have worked in Higher Education for a few years now.
Teaching is my passion, and I created contentoitaliano as a place where people can learn about all aspects of the Italian language and culture.
