Would you like to spend two weeks in Caorle

Would you like to spend two weeks in Caorle, at the seaside, and in the meantime to attend an Italian language course for FREE?

The Center for Italian Language and Culture IL FARO offers you this wonderful opportunity!

Once again, our Italian Language Centre "IL FARO" will be giving two talented writers the opportunity of winning a free Italian language course* on our premises in Caorle (Venice), by taking part in the fourth edition of the literary prize "Un dito nell’occhio - A finger in your eye".

Are you ready to face this challenge by performing the task of writing us a story, in the Italian language? The challenge, for our Italian Culture followers abroad, is the one reported below: write a story (between 1000 and 1500 words) with the main topic focused on a Souvenir d'Italie.

Our homes are full of objects that remind us of our trips and journeys, reflected in people we met, places we've been to, landscapes we've seen: Gondolas from Venice, Towers of Pisa,

Miniaturized Roman statues or arenas. Some are more beautiful than others, but they are always objects related to meaningful experiences.

Tell us the story of your Souvenir d'Italie, you could give yourself the opportunity of travelling to Italy once again, with new souvenirs to discover and more stories to tell.

The requisites to participate are the following:

- to be over 18 years of age

- to not be a native speaker
