Learn Italian


Parole Libere ​is a Festival of Italian Poetry in Canada organized by the Italian Cultural Centre in Vancouver, BC. It is open to all those who love the Italian language: from childrento elders, from beginner students to native speakers. This event will be a meeting point for amateur and professional writers, language instructors and anyone who loves Italian poetry and culture. It will be an opportunity to understand what poetry is, how to read it, and how creative writing happens.

The first edition’s theme is ​Avvicinamenti​(“Gatherings”). In times of social distancing and border closures, the Festival’s events will explore how poetry can help us reconnect with one another.

The Festival consists of two cultural offerings: a series of virtual events featuring poets and poetry experts, and an Italian poetry contest.


The Events

The Festival’s goal is to promote the creative use of the Italian language. For this reason, Il Centro will offer three events discussing how to read and write poetry. These events will help the contest participants write their work by giving them useful tools to express themselves through poetry.

See What Our Students Think of Our Classes:

I thoroughly enjoyed the Beginners 1 course … I especially appreciated the emails sent summarizing what was taught during the preceding class and concerning homework – these were very helpful and beyond what I have experienced in taking other language courses with other educational providers”.
