Ordering the pasta arrabbiata at Olive Garden is one thing, but how about knowing what arrabbiata means? Do you really want angry pasta all up in your spot? P.S. Giardino di Ulivi—they don't have breadsticks in Italy...

With Shmoop's guide to the AP Italian Language and Culture Exam—tasted and approved by nonna herself—you'll

  • learn how to hear hand gestures and see accents. Or something like that.
  • practice your passato prossimo vs. imperfetto skillz. 
  • brush up on your Italian culture knowledge—and we're talking more than gelato.

Mamma mia!
