Sprachcaffe acquires school in Florence

August 3, 2012

Global language school chain Sprachcaffe has announced the acquisition of Italy’s oldest private language institute, Centro Linguistico Italiano Dante Alighieri in Florence.


Dante Alighieri, founded in 1965, is located in an historic 19th century building overlooking the Piazza della Repubblica in the centre of Florence. The classrooms are located on the second floor and student residences are offered within the same building. Computers and Wi-Fi access are available for students.

Beside a range of language and academic preparation programmes, computer training is also provided, along with cooking and design courses, reflecting the culture and character of the city of Florence. Dante Alighieri has proved particularly popular with students and academics from the USA aiming to learn professional Italian.

“We are very proud to count the oldest language school of our home country Italy as part of the Sprachcaffe family,” said company CEO, Alberto Sarno. “With three decades of experience in teaching Italian to foreigners, we will contribute our expertise to the high teaching standards at Dante Alighieri.”

Sprachcaffe was founded in 1983 and offers seven different languages in 31 locations around the world.
