PIZZA SCHOOL

The students of the Italian Club/IHS learnt how to make an authentic Italian Pizza thanks to the world champion pizza maker Renato Viola at Miami Pizza School 
In 2017, the art of “pizzaiuoli”— prepping and extravagantly flipping the dough, then topping it and throwing it in a wood-fired oven — has been handed down for generations in Naples, and was added to UNESCO’s coveted “intangible heritage” list. Making pizza is a cultural art!

          ITALIAN VIDEO RECIPES PROJECT

How to learn Italian language and culture by cooking?

The Italian students of Italian II and I.S. made their own Italian authentic recipes. Watch our video recipes! 

Cooking is an entertaining activity that offers many advantages when it comes to learn a language; it makes students work in a new semantic field, which means new vocabulary and grammar through actions. Learning in a relaxed environment allows students to speak up more easily. Besides learning new vocabulary, learning while doing allows to put into practice the grammar structures previously learned.


Settimana della lingua italiana nel mondo.

La "Giornata ProGrammatica", è un progetto rivolto a tutti gli studenti di lingua italiana e agli Istituti di cultura italiana nel mondo, per valorizzare la conoscenza della nostra lingua.

#parolefuorimoda

La Giornata ProGrammatica ha richiamato negli anni un’attenzione sempre maggiore non solo da parte del pubblico, ma anche dei principali media italiani e del web, grazie anche al popolare hashtag #GiornataProGrammatica, che ha sempre scalato i trending topic di Twitter in Italia. Anche quest’anno ci sarà un secondo hashtag a tema: #parolefuorimoda, scelto per sollecitare tutti (e in particolare gli studenti) a riscoprire la straordinaria ricchezza lessicale dell’italiano, recuperando parole troppo spesso dimenticate per pigrizia o trascuratezza.
I am pleased to announce that Rai Radio3 selected the ISPA artworks (pictures and video) that will be published on the social media pages of the event "Giornata ProGrammatica"

2014 RE-CYCLING PROJECT

Circo Massimo Entertainment, with the help of the City of Miami Beach, collected junk bicycles from the streets and gave them to 15 schools of the Miami-Dade district, selected by ODLI, Inc. (Organization for the Development of the Italian Language) and IIPA (Italian International Parent Association). Students have disassembled, attached, painted and glued parts of the bikes to create a unique piece of art, as a free expression of kids’ creativity.
The artwork made by the Italian IS class will receive the award of the “Best Recycling Project” during the event organized by Circo Massimo for Gran Fondo Italia, on Saturday October 25th at Miami Ironside (Upper East) and it will be displayed at the Coral Gables Museum and at the Art Basel.
