Olga Sting with SASL, the great language school I have written about before, just sent me the following article from the Surrentum Magazine in Sorrento, Italy. SASL participated in a conference Sorrento Lingue hosted with members of many of the local towns and groups promoting Sorrento and the peninsula. Think of your next Italian Adventure as an opportunity to learn the language and some of the traditions of Italia. http://sorrentolingue.com
On May 21th 2012, Sant’Anna Institute-Sorrento Lingue (SASL), based in Sorrento, hosted
a round table (sponsored by the Sorrento town hall) with 18 students and 4 faculty members
from Point Park University’s School of Communication (Pittsburgh, USA).
SASL President, Cristiana Panicco, introduced the round table and the speakers including
Mr. Gaetano Milano (Sorrento Tourism Councilor), Roberto Amuro (President of “Amalfi Coast”),
Antonino Siniscalchi (Director of “Surrentum”), Michele Cinque (Founder of the online newspaper
“Positano News”) and Fabio Colucci (“Sorrento City Train Tour”).
The Round Table analyzed the online communication and web marketing strategies used by the Sorrento town hall, the Tourist Board of Sorrento, and local newspapers, magazines, radio and TV networks, in order to promote Sorrento and its peninsula as a significant tourist destination worldwide.
The goal of the round table was to present the initiatives that are undertaken in the Peninsula for tourism promotion; it also represented an enriching moment of exchange of opinions and experiences with American students specialized in communication. The event is part of the activities organized by SASL within its Study Abroad accredited programs (summer and semester), for students coming from several American universities.
Think of joining one of their programs on your next adventure to Italia!
Dont be a tourist, be a traveler.....
