Language House

Elbert House

Elbert House is the Italian Language immersion house, which serves as a residence for 13 - 20 students interested in improving their understanding of both Italian language and culture. The house has a full kitchen and living room. Events are organized by the Cultural Program Coordinators in liaison with the Italian Department.

Language House Cultural Program Coordinators (CPCs) are staff members who live in a language house. In addition to teaching adjunct language courses, CPCs strive to create a sense of community within their houses and provide an opportunity for the students living in the houses to be immersed in the language and culture. The CPCs plan cultural as well as community-building programs

I am Enrico Perini and I'm from the northern part of Italy, near Venice. My town is a little jewel, called Bassano del Grappa (yeah, you have to google it, it's worth!). I lived in different countries, Finland, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and now I'm here to experience the American culture in Colorado!

I enjoy talking with people, reading and playing soccer.

If you are interested in the activities we do at the Italian House, or just want to stop in for a coffee, do not hesitate and contact me (, or even better follow us on Instagram at : dolce_vita_coloradocollege

Hope to see you around!
