What is Patreon & how does it work?

Patreon is a platform that allows you to support your favourite artists and content creators by pledging a monthly amount of your choice. Depending on if and how a creator decides to reward their patrons, your pledge can be a simple donation or an actual membership fee. Patreon provides an easy way to offer additional content and services by means of locked posts and attachments that can only be accessed by patrons, and it charges creators a 5 to 12% commission fee.

Important: new patrons are charged upfront so they can gain immediate access to all past content, and then on the 1st of the next month. Taxes will be added to your pledge if you live in Europe or other countries that apply VAT. You can change or cancel your pledge at any time.

Why support us on Patreon?

Making a pledge on Patreon is a great way to let us know that you enjoy the free content that we provide on this Website and on our YouTube channel.

Writing, filming, and editing our videos is very time-consuming, and we are investing most of our time and energy in this project. While most of our content is and will always remain freely available, we also want to provide additional tools for those who are really passionate about the Italian language & culture, and would like to delve deeper. We have a lot of ideas for new video & audio content, and we will gradually roll them out on Patreon.
