Radio Dante Viaggi – 14. Siena

“In questo nuovo podcast torniamo in Toscana, in un’altra città ricca di storia e tradizioni: Siena. Dopo uno sguardo alle “crete senesi”, entriamo a Siena attraverso le mura antiche. Accompagnati dalle dense parole di Federigo Tozzi scopriamo da subito qualche angolo più nascosto della città, come quello della Fonte Follonica, per poi proseguire fino a Piazza del Campo. In questa piazza è impossibile non ricordare il Palio, tradizione ancora oggi ben sentita e viva per i senesi e non solo. Infine, sapevate che la pavimentazione del Duomo di Siena è un’opera italiana unica a cui hanno partecipato artisti famosissimi dal Trecento fino all’Ottocento?”

I was also able to tune in to the new radio station: Radio Dante Cambridge, and that was a wonderful experience – made me nostalgic for all things Italian. Yours is such a rich cultural experience at La Dante…I am looking forward to having more Italian cultural experiences here at La Dante in Cambridge

Nicola Boccaccini

I listened to the programme and I have to say that it is really interesting and makes me desire to come to England. You have more ‘Italian activities’ there than here in Italy, my compliments to all the people that organize all these beautiful things for the Italian community. The radio programme is a mixture of utility, culture and relax with good music.

RadioDante is a great contribution to culture and language learning not only in Cambridge but via the internet in the whole world! The recordings are high quality and have relevant and interesting cultural content. The pronunciation and intonation of the speakers are excellent. I'm a beginner, but I listened to the Spanish recording and was able to understand it! Many thanks for this fantastic opportunity to listen, learn and practice new languages!

Exciting opportunities opening up into a new generation of communication. La Dante in Cambridge gets global neighbours talking to one another in their own languages and sharing their cultures to improve cultural understanding and closing cultural divides. Of immense practical use, which only the top 1% of the world's population really get to experience. Let's face it, we don't get that even when we spend two weeks on a foreign holiday.
