Umbria Experience is an immersive experience in the Italian and specifically Umbrian economic, cultural, social life.
The project consists of original thematic itineraries and courses aimed at knowing the territory also through meetings with the local Umbrian excellencies. Accordingly, the proposal is aimed to an international audience wishing to experience authentic Italy, as well as entrepreneurs who want to develop collaborations.
The course is divided into four weeks: two take place in Perugia at Palazzo Gallenga and are an introduction to Italian language and culture; two are devoted to the discovery of Umbria, approaching the cultural life of the territory, its history, its landscape and historical-artistic heritage and its typical productions.
Art & nature
Art, spirituality and landscape: a journey to discover the green heart of Italy, the region of Umbria
The course will last four weeks and will be based in Palazzo Gallenga in Perugia, an 18th century aristocratic residence and headquarters of the University for Foreigners of Perugia, close to the Etruscan walls. During the week, lessons will take place in the classrooms of Palazzo Gallenga and will focus on Italian culture and Umbria's artistic heritage, with particular reference to the cities that will be visited on the weekends. The course is held in Italian, but can be repeated in English on request, especially during the Spring and Summer seasons.
Food & wine
A journey to discover Italian food and wine culture and the excellence of the Umbria region
The course is divided into four weeks: the first two take place in Perugia and represent an introduction to Italian food culture, discovering Umbria, its history, its landscape, its historical and artistic heritage and its typical products. The remaining weeks in Norcia involve devoting the first day to a presentation of the city and focusing the following 8 days on a product of excellence from its territory. The course is held in Italian, but can also be replicated, on request, in English, especially in the Spring-Summer months.
