What we're about

We are Scuola Italiana di Portland, a local, Portland area school for both children and adult language and culture students. This group will schedule separate gatherings for both adults and families with children that provide connections to community and culture with plenty of opportunities to speak the language and enjoy the culture. All events geared toward families will require a parent or guardian be present for the entire event. This group is open to all language levels from the true beginner to advanced level. We look forward to meeting you!
