Our Italian School

About Bravissimi
  • Bravissimi. The Italian Language School of Melbourne.

    Bravissimi. Just like an Italian school.

    Bravissimi first opened its doors to the Italian-Australian community in Melbourne in 2011 offering, according to much consent, a remarkable service.



  • Bravissimi-Airport-West

    Our school at Airport West reflects our values; the colourful and playful environment designed by the Bravissimi creative team provides an atmosphere that is inviting for all in attendance.

  • Giusi Galbo

    Meet our Star Leader: Giusi Galbo.

    Giusi is an Italian fully qualified teacher and co founder of Bravissimi. She has started teaching in Italian primary schools in 1989. Her passion for teaching children has never stopped since.

    From Siracusa, Sicily, in her adult years moved to Como where she worked as a Primary School teacher for the Italian Department of Education where she practiced her methodology in Italy for several years. Her studies include the Maria Montessori Methodology.

    When moved with her family to Melbourne in 1996 and began working as an Italian teacher for both private schools and as a tutor for students aged 3 up to VCE levels.

    Giusi has great experience in teaching the Italian language in kindergartens, primary schools, secondary students and with adults in Melbourne. Over the years she has perfected a schooling system that matches with Australian standards. Giusi is now committed to keep improving her teaching methods and to train teachers in order to create a even more effective Bravissimi Team.

  • We Follow The Montessori Philosophy

    As Montessori teachers, we see daily evidence of the importance of language in early childhood development. We also observe how easily and avidly young children acquire language and build vocabulary. 

    At Bravissimi we love using Maria’s Montessori Educational Materials. Not only is your child exposed to the Italian language but also the proven benefits this of this method from all over the world.

    Why We Use The Montessori Method
  • What We Offer

    The best way for children to learn is to have a lot of fun while participating to a class where only Italian is spoken.

    Our program creates lots of variety and fun activities (different every week) in a stimulating and colourful environment in Airport West.

    Bravissimi provides great Italian language classes to children from Pre-School, during and after school. Bravissimi is open to all backgrounds willing to learn a second language rather than English.

    Are you serious about your child being bilingual? So are we!
