The IISC has just opened a new didactic location/structure in Salerno, which will be a second lung of our institute so that those who can not come to Rome can breathe the air of the Classics! The lessons are entirely held in Latin and are opened to everyone. Guided step by step by the teacher, the students will actively learn the grammar, the vocabulary and the phraseological expressions/idiomatic expressions of the Latin literature.
