Italian Language House at WM

Meet Stefano Olmastroni (2015-6 Language House Tutor):


I graduated from the University of Florence in Euro-American Languages and Literatures with a focus on literary translation. Meanwhile I worked as a translator in the Accademia della Crusca, one of the leading institutions in the field of research on the Italian language.

My interests include music – playing a variety of stringed instruments – poetry and theatre.


A wonderful description of the Italian house by one previous tutor, Giulia Manganelli (Language House Tutor 2012-4)

People might ask you: what does it feel like living in the Italian House? Guys, it feels great. Seriously. The year 2012-2013 was particularly full of events and activities. Besides an overwhelmingly funny and playful atmosphere, the I-House has even more to offer. It’s all about Italian culture, Italian language, Italian cinema, Italian food (…well, to be precise, it’s A LOT about Italian food). We hope that the I-House is an unforgettable academic and personal experience for our residents and students. You start the academic year living with 23 strangers; 9 months later, you find yourself living with your new family.
