How it all began
Lexit Escape Room
Lexit Escape Room was born in 2017, as an educational experimentation aimed at exploiting the potential of the escape games in language teaching. Created as a cooperation project between three language teachers, designed and offered to international students and privates, Lexit escape room is now a wide-ranging project and collaborates with universities, companies, museums, cultural organizations and private clients, being able to develop any kind of content through games and active group engagement for special goals.
All the puzzles of our rooms are designed and personalized with great attention to details, depending on our clients’ needs. Educational activities, team building practices and any kind of collaboration turn out to be at the same time funny and useful, thanks to the balance between entertainment, education and goal achievement.
To design our rooms, we rely on playful language teaching, storytelling, applied linguistics and communicative teaching methods. Our references are authors such as A.Mollica, W.W.Cook, M.Danesi, T.Fullerton, S.Nicholson, M.Cziksentmihalyi, B.Brathwaite, I.Schreiber, R.Rouse.
Escapegame Designer and Co-Founder
I’m Lexit’s present escape game designer, as well as its co-founder in 2017. I’ve been teaching English and Italian to foreigners in organizations, companies, cooperatives, universities and cultural associations. In these contexts, I organise and manage courses for adults, employees, pensioners, university students and migrants. My experience in teaching, and my studies - master degree in Languages and Literatures + master Promoitals, about Italian teaching to foreigners - let me test alternative communicative approaches in language teaching and learning, such as game like activities and problem solving. In Lexit I could exploit all that I’ve learnt and tested throughout my studying and teaching years, making my dream come true: working with all that I love - languages, arts, history and loads of creativity!

I’ve been teaching Italian to foreigners in a couple of schools in Milan. I got my degree in Humanities and Editorial Culture in Università Statale of Milan and, after working in cultural contexts, I decided to attend Promoitals master. I mainly teach to adults, employees and university students.
