The classes are taught throughout the Chapters and at our Center in the heart of South Philadelphia. The “M.Fabrizio & P.Nestico Center for Language and Culture” is located on E. Passyunk Ave and Mifflin Streets. It was opened in 2005 and is the home to our cultural events as well. We offer a variety of Italian Language Classes to accommodate all levels of learners. Currently we offer Beginners I, Beginners II, Intermediate, and Advanced classes. Our mission of providing Italian classes to all of society at affordable rates is realized through our language program at Filitalia International.
