  • Have you seen this https://www.talentitaly.it/. I just viewed it today. This interests me - i will read more about this soon.

    PS: over the last few years i have developed an interest in the Italian language and consequently all things Italian. I started learning Italian informally but have tailed off due to a big project in the last 6 months. Hopefully pick it up again soon :-)
