Hello world! I’am Elisabetta and in the last years I have done so many experiences and jobs in Italy and abroad… But my true passion has always been teaching Italian language and culture!  I’ve been jumping between many schools in many different cities but a dream follows you everywhere and now…I’ve finally found the courage to make my little school existing and to completely express my passion, in my way, with my style.

In a fascinating, historical building, in the city centre of Florence, there is now my Monnalisa, a place where to learn Italian language but, as well, where to feel at home, where I help my students coming from abroad in everything they could need and we become a kind of family. It is a place born from motivation and passion!

The beginnings are hard, leaving a full time job makes you anxious but I can see that whenever you follow your deepest inspiration, you can slowly see the results and the things changing around…


“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined” ( Henry David Thoreau).


In the heart of the Renaissance city, a few steps from Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, Santa Croce, there is a charming, historic building of the ‘300, which preserves all the beauty of the past. Here lies our “Monnalisa”, a dream born from the passion for the culture and the Italian language, honed by years of teaching abroad.

Here you will find a reassuring, welcoming atmosphere, that tastes of home, desire to stay together and tell the charm of an ancient language, its secrets and its nuances.

You will live an experience of study which will become a beautiful memory, in the center of a timeless city. You’ll get to the school through the typical medieval alleys, walking through the old shops, stopping in renowned restaurants and cafè for a meal or for a drink.
