This 5-session class, organized in partnership with ItalCultura, the official language center at the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, will introduce students to the language and cuisine of Italy by focusing on a different Italian region each week. The first hour and half of each session will be taught by an ItalCultura language instructor, Alessia Romanoni, who will provide an introduction to the culinary history and culture of that region. During the second hour, students will enjoy a demonstration, taught by the chef of Eataly’s cooking school, on how to prepare a classic, regional Italian dish from start to finish. Students will enjoy the finished dish paired with a wine chosen by our beverage expert.



This session will focus on the regions of Trentino Alto-Adige, Liguria, Lazio, Campania and Sicilia.



This course is aimed at beginner-level Italian speakers who intend to travel to Italy. Efficient communication and idiomatic knowledge of everyday Italian will be a primary objective. 



This course takes place Mondays, 3pm-5:30pm, April 8th, April 15th, April 29th and May 6th, May 13th and has a capacity of 16 students.

Alessia Romanoni

Alessia was born and raised in Milan, Italy. Her family combines cultural influences from the North (on her father’s side) and the South (on her mother’s), which contributed to the development of her interest in the cultural and linguistic complexity of the country. After pursuing classical studies in high school she graduated in Humanities at the University of Milan, majoring in Italian Philology. She then moved to Chicago where she started working in advertisement, but also as a translator and private Italian teacher. Meanwhile she earned a Master’s degree in Language Pedagogy from Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, with a specific focus on teaching Italian to foreign students. She is also certified to teach English as a Foreign Language. Alessia’s main passions are traveling, reading, interior and fashion design, photography, and singing.
