Launched in 2017, Parole Parole is our home-made web series. Every week, we present an Italian word, be it old, new, out of use, impossible to translate, strange, quintessentially Italian, or used all around the world. It features famous guests of Casa Italiana, as well as students, professors and Casa members.
