About Maria Fusco

I have a Master’s Degree in Classical Literature from the University of Naples and a Ph.D. in Semiotics and the Psychology of Symbolic Communication from the University of Siena. I am a Research Fellow in Semiotics and Philosophy of Language at the University of Rome, where I have a teaching post in the Philosophy of Language Department. I am the author of a number of articles and a monograph published by Carocci, Rome on classical philosophical ideas on language In 2009, I took a course on Teaching Italian as a Second Language at the Scuola Leonardo da Vinci, Rome, with 150 training hours as an Italian teacher of classes at various levels. I have the DITALS (Level II) Certificate for teaching Italian to foreigners. Since then, I have been teaching Italian at high schools in Rome and Naples and have taken part in a number of inter-cultural educational projects involving students of different nationalities, on the significance of each culture and comparisons with Italian culture. I have also been teaching Italian for foreigners at a private school (the Istituto Dante Alighieri in Rome) and giving private lessons. I am currently a freelance author (EsseLibri Simone, S.r.l.) of a grammar for Italian as a foreign language (in press). My interests are linguistics and classical literature, the theatre (I have acting experience), pilates and reading (in particular novels and the works of Italo Calvino), and I have a passion for old movies.
