Who we are

Diego Cattaneo – School Director

Diego Buongiorno, sono Diego. I was born in Venice, where I grew up and studied classics at high school. I graduated in Law at the University of Bologna in 2000 and straight after that I moved to London, where I lived for 12 years.

In 2000, I trained at the International House (IH) School of Languages in London. I started teaching Italian as a foreign language in 2001 to groups and individuals of all levels, ages and educational background.

I have also taught Italian for business in companies such as Christie’s, Lloyds TSB, Generali Assicurazioni, the City University of London and International House.

In 2009 I founded the Venice Italian School in my hometown.
