What is this course about?
This course is a journey into Federico Fellini’s movies. Federica, Italian teacher and filmmaker, will guide you into the world of one of the most exceptional and visionary Italian movie directors. With a focus on selected movies and recurring motifs of Fellini’s cinematographic art, you’ll have the chance to explore both his aesthetic ideas and aspects of the Italian history, society and culture as reflected in his movies. During the lessons you will have the opportunity to watch movie scenes in Italian and dive into authentic materials that will encourage free exchanges of opinions in Italian. Both people that are completely unfamiliar with Fellini’s cinema and those who have watched the entire filmography are welcome: this course is open to everybody!

- What happens if I can’t attend a lesson?
We understand participants may miss a lesson in a group course due to various reasons. In the case of short courses (consisting of only 4 lessons) participants who miss one lesson may receive a coupon as a refund for one missed lesson. Please note that in order to qualify for the coupon, you must inform the admin team (email addressed to info[@]onlineitalianclasses.com) of your non-attendance at least 24 hours before the lesson starts. Customers will be able to use the coupon for buying any product on the Online Italian Classes shop.
- What happens if I’m not able to inform the admin team in time?
In this scenario you can still email the admin team (email addressed to info[@]onlineitalianclasses.com) explaining your reasons for non-attendance and ask for the coupon. The admin team will evaluate your request at their discretion.
- What happens if the course doesn’t reach the minimum number of participants?
If the course you bought doesn’t reach the minimum number of participants, we will send you a 60-GBP coupon code, which will be valid on any product on the Online Italian Classes shop (for example, you can use it for buying a pack of one-to-one lessons and ask for an individual course about the same topic and led by the same teacher of the course).
- How do I know if my level of Italian is OK for this course?
This course is suitable for intermediate learners of Italian (from B1), which means the teacher will speak slowly and will help your understanding by typing the most difficult words on the screen or in the chat box. She will also encourage you to interrupt her in any moments if you need a clarification or have questions. This course is not suitable for complete beginners in Italian, but It’s totally fine for the participants to make mistakes and not understand everything. Please check the CEFR self-assessment grid if you have any doubts and remember that what your teacher needs from you in order to make things work is just motivation and the will to learn.
