Lodovico Manfredini Veronesi

Lodovico Manfredini Veronesi was born and raised in Vignola, a little town between Modena and Bologna, known for the amazing cherries and the well preserved medieval castle. After a 19 years career in the law enforcement, in 2014 he got his Master degree in Sociology and moved to Vegas with his beloved wife Laila. He started right away teaching Italian language at the College of Southern Nevada, where he had the opportunity to introduce many students to that beautiful language. After a year spent as an English Language Arts teacher in a public middle school, in 2017 he started his career as a Real Estate Consultant, continuing at the same time to pursue his love for teaching and sharing the culture and language of his mother land.

Lodovico loves to sing and never misses an Italian karaoke night (he won the 2018 edition as most entertaining performance), and he’s convinced that having fun is the best way to learn a language!
