Behind the scenes
CulturaGo’s Introduction to Italian Culture course is the combined effort of many passionate, dedicated, and talented individuals.
You’ve already met your course guide, Andrea Colinucci, who has shared some of his own insights and experiences on Italian culture and its people.
Of course none of the content would have been provided without our hard working, determined and incredibly intelligent head writer, a PhD graduate from SOAS University in London, UK.
Introduction to Italian Culture draws on the wisdom and first-hand accounts of a host of contributors. They include young working professionals and students from various areas in Italy, as well as expats from countries in North America, Europe and Africa.
All of this hard work has resulted in a course that’s the first of its kind: a complete cultural guide, purpose-designed to give you the most meaningful experience of Italy.
