What and where
What is Halisaclub?
Halisaclub is a Cultural Association with the purpose to spread Italian language and culture all over the world through Italian language courses, classes of art, history, literature, music, cuisine.. and also excursions, cultural initiatives, events, twinships.
Where is Palermo?
It is in the south of Italy, in the beautiful island of Sicily. Palermo is the sixth largest city in Italy, it is the capital of Sicily, and it is famous for its historical centre, the largest in Europe, where Arabic, Norman, Baroque, Liberty testimonies can be found.
Where is Halisaclub?
Our classes take place both in the centre of Palermo and in a nice village by the sea, about 15 Km from Palermo.
What does the name "halisa" mean?
More than 1000 years ago, during Arab domination, an area of Palermo called "al hàlisah" was chosen by the Emir and his court to be their headquarters. At that time Palermo became the cultural and artistic centre of the Mediterranean. The name "al hàlisah" literally means "favorite, excellent, chosen, elected."
We chose this name for our Association to indicate our passion for history and at the same time, our vocation for excellence and quality.
Courses and lessons
Where do the lessons take place?
Halisaclub is a “school without walls”: our classes take place outside the traditional classroom, in terraces by the sea or at the teachers’ homes.
