Qui si parla italiano!

We found this show the other day on RAI and watched a couple of episodes (puntate). The show is about the Italian language and foreigners living in Italy (stranieri) and how they use the language. One or more foreigners is invited on the show to talk about how they learned the language and is quizzed on the finer points of the language. During each episode there is little bit of grammar and vocabulary. A professor from the Dante Alighieri school keeps the language on the up and up by correcting and instructing everyone as needed. At the end of the show, the guest reads a passage from a book (in Italian naturally) and so far it seems it is always the story of Pinocchio.
