Courses at The Center For Italian Studies are taught by scholars with Ph.D.s or equivalent Italian doctoral degrees.
The Center for Italian Studies is directed by Rossana Fenu Barbera, Ph.D. in Italian Literature (Johns Hopkins University, 1998). Dr. Barbera, a native Italian, is a resident of Baltimore where she has been teaching since 1987. Before founding The Center For Italian Studies, where she also teaches classes at all levels, Dr. Barbera has taught Italian in the major academic institutions in the Maryland area. Dr. Barbera has also lived 12 years in Florence, Italy, where she earned her first academic degree, the Laurea in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University of Florence (1983). She has published two books ( 2001 and 2017) and numerous academic articles on Contemporary and Medieval Italian Literature in international academic journals. She has created the program of Italian at Loyola Blakefield where she teaches courses of Italian from level 1 to AP Italian since 2012.
