"...there are also those willing to hire qualified Americans...Paid work is available at a number of summer camps offering English instruction, a good opportunity for young people to spend a summer in Italy and learn more about teaching English to young learners. Some programs involve teaching through the medium of theater (such as A.C.L.E. summer camps), so anyone interested in drama will be attracted by this idea. This type opportunity is open to non-European nationalities, since the summer work period is so short." —Author Susan Griffith in Teaching English In Europe.

As in much of the EU, there are schools in beautiful locations providing certificates and who provide help with job placement in Italy, but it is not otherwise easy to find work teaching English though you can find English teaching job postings for Italy among others in Europe.

Several programs provide choices between homestays with Italian families, where room and board is provided in exchange for teaching English conversation for a few hours a week, teaching assistant programs, or participation in summer camps as teachers.
