We know you came here hungry for new experiences and we want you to taste the Italian culture, for free.
International students in Bologna/Milano have the opportunity to have dinner once a week with an Italian family throughout the duration of their stay.
Being a part of DineHome as a student consists of having dinner with an Italian family once a week. The dinner is held at the host familes house in order to welcome you to an Italian home and bring you closer to our culture. The dinner is kindly offered by the host family. You will be invited to visit the same family every week. The student-family match is fixed to give you the opportunity to build friendship with the family.
(For a proper cultural immersion, we suggest you to enjoy at least 10 meals together)
DineHome has no additional cost but for the transport to reach the host family house.
Keep in mind that DineHome is a solo experience and that usually Italian families are hosting you to practice your mother tongue language/English. If you are willing to practice your italian, remember that you are expected to speak English as well!
To participate you just have to sign up filling the application form, to let us know your preferences (language, day of the week, etc).
DineHome has been active in bologna for many years.
