About the Department

Italian at Reading was started  in 1948 by the well-known novelist Luigi Meneghello. Today the Department is one of the largest in the UK, with nine full-time academic staff. It has a distinguished record in research and scholarship, and was awarded the highest grade, 5*A, now 6*, in the last Research Assessment Exercise.  We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching, and aim to provide a lively, friendly and supportive environment, in which the interests and aptitudes of each student can be developed to the full.
