Hey, I'm Silvia
I tell stories that nurture your love for Italian. Because a story is much more than just its language.
I’m a teacher, author, content creator, blogger, reader, language learner, jewelry maker, aperitivo lover, summer at the beach type of girl. I publish stories, podcasts, videos, but I’m an introvert.
I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I’m sure we share a passion for languages.
Because I am extremely curious, I have always found it hard to just use the same old materials to learn a language. So that’s why I write stories and lead workshops to help you learn Italian creatively and at your own pace.
Why stories will elevate your Italian
stories are a powerful language learning tool
Learning a language is about connecting the dots. When you can connect a new piece of information with a story, a place, a person, it is easier to remember it and re-use it.
With stories, the possibilities are endless. You only need to take some time off everything (are 30 minutes a week doable for you?) With a story you can learn a lot of new words, understand how the language works, listen to a natural-paced spoken Italian. You’ll re-discover the pleasure of doing something just for you. And you’ll finally embrace your mistakes — because this is how you grow.
I write stories for you, so you can just relax, read, and learn. Learning Italian through my stories is also an immersion in the Italian life. Explore it with your senses, take the freedom to do some cozy-Italian-learning.
How to boost your Italian in a month
In a perfect world you would have the perfect amount of time in your day to learn Italian, you would learn quickly, you would have a perfect pronunciation, you would understand native speakers even when they talk at the speed of light. Yeah, that would be perfect. Except… learning a language doesn’t work like that. That’s relieving, right? I’m going to show you how beautiful it is to be imperfect: I have written a micro-story and 5 creative exercises to fall in love with Italian (I know you already are, but how can you say no to some extra love?). I have also paced it for you so you don’t feel overwhelmed — all you have to do is to drop your name and email below and let the magic begin.
You know Italian is perfect for you
use your creativity to blossom
You don’t have to feel intimidated by Italian, actually there are so many things you can do with just a few words. Start small, don’t compare to anyone else, grow at your own pace. I provide you with resources to write and read in Italian starting from exactly where you are now.

There’s no better way to know if you can do something than doing it. One of the main reasons you start learning Italian is that you find it beautiful, musical, poetic, even sexy? But of course, as a beginner you might think it will take a very long time before you are able to really enjoy the beauty of the language. Well, your grammar may not be 100% accurate, or even 50% accurate, but you are definitely going to LOVE taking this class. You’ll see how easy it is to find your words in Italian starting from someone else’s words.
PS: if I haven’t convinced you yet, read the testmonials at the bottom of this page.
I’m an introvert who loves to chat (can you imagine?). When you learn a language you need friends to chat with, it can’t always be lessons and courses. So Elfin, Barbara, and I invite you to join us and take part in an authentic Italian conversation.
Do you love chatting over drinks with your friends? So do we.
We’re Elfin, Barbara and Silvia and we meet up twice a month and talk about this and that. In Italian.
