Who are Graziana Filomeno and Rocco Dabellonio of LearnAmo? Let’s find it out! 🙂
Hi everyone! I’m Graziana and I come from a small town close to Bari, the administrative center in Apulia. I graduated from the University of Bari with a degree in Linguistic and Intercultural Mediation (with the highest mark: 110 with honours!). I speak English, French and German pretty well, but I always want to learn new languages! Currently, I’m studying at the University of Bologna to obtain my Master’s Degree. My passion for foreign languages made me develop an interest in teaching, for this reason, I decided to create and embark on this wonderful and exciting adventure called LearnAmo! 😉
Hi! I’m Rocco! I come from the North of Apulia, to be more precise, a small town close to Foggia. I studied at the University of Bari where I graduated with a degree in Linguistic and Intercultural Mediation with the highest mark (110 with honours). I speak English and Spanish fluently and I also know a little bit of French. In addition, I’ve recently completed my Master’s Degree in Language, Society and Communication at the University of Bologna (with the highest mark as well)! Anyway, besides languages, my other big passion has always been Information Technology, that’s why, when I have a little bit of time, I follow with immense pleasure Graziana’s website and YouTube channel where she teaches the Italian language and culture! 😎

Your Go-To place to learn Italian I really don't know where to start - the videos are endlessly entertaining, chock-full of information, sly humor, occasional snark, and, in the end, they're just plain fun.You get the feeling that you *know* Graziana and Rocco, that they're speaking to *you*, that you have a connection. Which isn't an accident. As you go down the rabbit hole, and time-machine your way back to their earliest videos, you get to see them learn alongside you - learn how to make videos, how to teach, how to entertain, and overall, how to make the whole process joyful.It's the same with all their other content - the site, the book, *everything*. Basically sparking joy.The awesome thing is if/when you meet them in person, they're exactly as they come off online - genuinely nice people who are fun to hang out with!Mind you, I've been taking lessons from Graziana now on Italki, and I have to say that I've learned more Italian in the last year from her than I have in all the preceding years. And I'm serious - I can't recommend her highly enough!The bottom line - if you're learning italian, you could do far far worse than LearnAmo and/or lessons directly from Graziana!
