Answer on How is school in Italy?

Italian schools are very different from the american ones!
1)you cannot choose the subjects you want to study,they are compulsory.
2)the school begins at 8:30 and finishes at 13:30(5 hours),then we usually have a lot of homework to do
every month we usually do a classwork in everysubject,and the marks goes from 2 (which is the lowest mark)to 10(which is impossible to take!!)
3)our schools are quite little,we have not good equipment ,especially in physical education!
4)in the 90%of the schools you do not need to wear an uniform,you can wear whatever you want(of course you can't wear bikinies XD)
5)rules?well..you should not talk during the lessons,arrive late or be absent more than the 20%of the scholastic year

i suggest you to learn a little Italian before you go there,as far as i could see on wikipedia site livigno is quite a village of 6000 inhabitants,probably the most of thm will not be able to talk a proper English or to understand you
