Today is the Festival of Languages, taking place at Castello San Giorgio in La Spezia. The festival, which is now in its fourth year, has been included in the list of official events for the celebration of European Languages Day and is recognised by the European Council.

The event, which is organised collaboratively by CSH Language School and the Institution of Cultural services for La Spezia, is designed for students and teachers of languages as well as anyone with an interest in languages. There will be free classes for children aged 6 to 14 and workshops for adults wishing to learn a new language and the evening will conclude with a short performance of ‘The Roots of Voice’ by the Academy of Sarzana Bianchi.
