A weekend group in Rome is bringing together children from across the world. Fun English for Children is held each Sat and includes stories, games and arts and crafts.
The group was set up by American teacher Tina Ciolfi three years ago and now meets at the Lion Bookshop and Caf in the historic centre.
Ciolfi, whose Italian parents moved from Frosinone in Lazio to Pasadena, California, in 1950, has been back in Rome teaching since 1996. She said: Weve got a real mix of children aged 5-10, from Australia, New Zealand, France, America and Italy.
