School Offices & Communications


The Italian School offices are located in Fels. If you are unfamiliar with the Bennington College campus, you can view a map here (our office is #36 on the map).

The Italian School administrative staff is dedicated to helping students and faculty make the most out of their Middlebury Language Schools experience. During the course of the summer, our staff will do their best to ensure that your stay is as educational and pleasant as possible.

An essential part of the Italian School office mission is communicating with students and faculty. To that end, the administrative staff often send announcements via E-mail (Middlebury E-mail addresses only) and make daily updates to our 2022 in-language summer website , which contains links to weekly event schedules, Il Giornalino and other useful information.

In the interest of efficiency, ALL visitors to the Italian School offices are asked to first check-in with the assistant at the Front Desk. If the assistant on duty is unable to resolve your question or concern, he or she will start a Help Ticket, and/or give you further instructions.

Regular hours of operation for the Italian School Front Desk are Monday thru Friday, 9am to 5pm, with a break for lunch from 1:30pm to 3pm. The Italian School offices and Front Desk are closed on Saturday and Sunday.

Please note that regular office and Front Desk hours end at 5pm on Friday, August 12. An E-mail update will be provided towards the end of the summer session detailing specifics for the last week of school.


The Italian School administration will use the school 2022 in-language summer website and the Middlebury e-mail  of all students and faculty for daily communications. While we try to maximize the use of the website to disseminate information and minimize the use of email announcemebrs ALL Italian School students and faculty are required to check their MIddlebury email account on a daily basis.scuolaitaliana3

Our weekly calendar of events (a.k.a. “il programma settimanale”) is available online at the in-language summer website. Please check it regularly each day to ensure that you have the most up-to-date schedule and information.

In addition, the Italian School newspaper Il Giornalino is published weekly on the school website. Students of all levels and abilities are encouraged to submit articles, photos, poems, essays, short stories, and more. For further information, please contact Professor Valentina Morello or Professor Marco Lettieri.
