Ecco, our last "reason" why Italy is relevant:   No other country sees life, the way that Italians see life. 


The Italian imagination has changed the world.  From ancient Rome, to the era of the big explorers, to the renaissance, to the rise of the catholic church, to.. you name it...  Italians have injected their energy and vitality into practically everything!


The Italian Imagination is a very special multi-video series that describes the process that Sergio and Romina (ITAL's creators) went through to create the film Tiramisu for Two.  The videos contain no subtitles; however, we are including different versions in English and Spanish (see links above).  We recommend you watch videos in your mother tongue and then watch the version in Italian.  This exercise can help you improve your listening and comprehension skills.
