‘I was also able to tune in to the new radio station: Radio Dante Cambridge, and that was a wonderful experience – made me nostalgic for all things Italian. Yours is such a rich cultural experience at La Dante…I am looking forward to having more Italian cultural experiences here at La Dante in Cambridge.’

‘I listened to the programme and I have to say that it is really interesting and makes me desire to come to England.  You have more ‘Italian activities’ there than here in Italy, my compliments to all the people that organize all these beautiful things for the Italian community. The radio programme is a mixture of utility, culture and relax with good music.’
