Explore Italy and its regions - Esplora l’Italia e le sue regioni
A bilingual handbook in Italian and English designed to help students learn and understand Italian geography, history, language, and traditions.
The book contains 3 main sections:

- An overview of Italy written in simple language, and a brief introduction to each region. It includes maps and illustrations to help readers locate places and understand words and concepts, and simple games designed to entertain and spur curiosity.
- A reading section intended for more advanced students who wish to read and learn more about Italy and discover additional facts about its 20 regions.
- A workbook with reproducible games, language activities, and tests, designed as a tool for teachers, care providers, and parents who wish to reinforce the concepts introduced in the previous sections and to evaluate the level of comprehension of the students.

Answer keys are included at the end.


The entire book has each section written in both Italian and English. The two languages are always displayed on two pages facing each other, so that the use of a dictionary is not necessary.
