That's kind of a touchy issue in most countries (at least within Europe). Where I live (in France) I know you're required to teach French language, literature and possibly history as part of any homeschooling program. I know the local language is required in several other European countries, so I suspect it may be a required subject in Italy as well.Thanks Bev for the info. What I still don't understand though is, if I were to use an English program (US or British), incorporating the IB Program, would that be legal in Italy? I really don't want to use the Italian curriculum.
