Eat Pray Love: Leave now and come to Rome, for Enjoying the pleasures of Life, of Italy and Learning Italian


“Have you lost touch with who you are? Then risk everything and let yourself go”. These are the words of the trailer of “Eat, Pray, Love”, the new movie interpreted by the beautiful and very good actress Julia Roberts and based on a book written by the American writer Elizabeth Gilbert.

The film is based on an incredible real story, which tells about a 32-years-old businesswoman who, after her divorce and a hard time, decides to leave and spend one year traveling among Italy, India and Indonesia, looking for herself.

In the book, she tells about her four months spent in Italy, to be more precise, in the beautiful Rome, and we can discover all the special moments she lived there, eating and enjoying life like only Romans can do, as the author says.

She falls in love with the Italian lifestyle, the way they have fun and enjoy their life without feeling guilty about it, and she also falls in love with the shy Giovanni, a handsome Italian guy who becomes her personal Italian language teacher.

Learning Italian was one of the things she always wanted to do, and now she will have this chance. She will learn Italian language making conversation with many new friends, eating in special restaurants with them, and discovering the curious Italian ways of saying and a lot of new words.

She will attend an Italian language course at the Italian language School Leonardo da Vinci in Rome, mentioned in the book in chapter 14: “My classes begin today at the Leonardo da Vinci Academy of Language Studies, where I will be studying Italian five days a week, four hours a day. I’m so excited about school.”

And how could we blame her? Studying Italian in such a wonderful city like Rome, an incredible opportunity for making new friends and making conversation everyday with whoever in every moment of the day or night. It’s impossible not to learn Italian here!

She always wanted to learn Italian, and at the school she will find other many people like her: “The interesting thing about my Italian class is that nobody really needs to be there. There are twelve of us studying together, of all ages, from all over the world, and everybody has come to Rome for the same reason – to study Italian just because they feel like it.”

She’s right. Everybody should leave and go abroad at least once in their life for living a new experience, learning a foreign language and knowing a different culture. It is an important experience where people find themselves and often find out something about them that they not even knew.

Liz’s story is an unforgettable journey, which one day you could have as well. And why not coming to Rome for learning Italian language? As the author says, “[…] some things are only in Rome. Like the sandwich counterman so comfortably calling me ‘beautiful’ every time we speak”. And some pages after, she continues: “It’s kind of a fairyland of language for me here. For someone who has always wanted to speak Italian, what could be better than Rome?”.

Yeah. What could be better than the wonderful Rome for learning Italian? Scuola Leonardo da Vinci is ready to welcome you and the city waits for you for teaching all the curiosities of Italy and all the secrets of this wonderful land.

And don’t forget about Italian meals…described by the author as “truly life-changing”!!! Don’t be afraid. Just come and see! Italy and Rome will change your life.

Take a chance and spend a period abroad, in Rome! You could know your Giovanni! ;-)
