It's time to retire. Had him for Italian literature and he was terrible. Had us read aloud in class as if we were first graders. Forget any textual analysis. His discussions consist of you summarizing the book and then him simplifying the themes into one word. If you are a Lit major, STAY AWAY!

NON DIRE STUPID AGGINI! this is one of the best professors in all of CUNY. I took him in the summer and there were only 6 of us in the class so he personally knew everyone. I noticed he was gonna pick on me alot so i started giving back stupid answers which made everyone laugh including him. his exams r not bad, he makes jokes, i def recomend him

He is the best Italian teacher at City College. Don't let his black humor and his attitude foolish you. He is very helpful, the way he speaks may make you think that he is a person with a nasty attitude but the thruth is that he is very HELPFUL, he is great. I recommend him 100%. Do not think it twice if you need his help.

Everyone love Rotella, but I didn't. He made learning Italian difficult for me by constantly picking on me. I tired very hard in his class, but dreaded going there because of his attitude (sarcasm) towards me. If you don't reply fast to a questions then there will be sarcasm. Be ready to be put on the spot. Oh, I dropped the class within a few weeks.

Can be very sarcastic and funny despite the gruff exterior, which took me a while to figure out, then I loved the guy. Very clear explanation of ideas and he will not let you fail: will tutor you and do whatever it takes to help you learn.

Not a bad professor, Good grader though. The test was somewhat easy but there's no notes to take during lecture b/c he doesn't write any and the students do most of the talking.

Obnoxious. If you want to learn the language, take another professor...any professor. They'll be 10x better than him. What a dickhead.

This guy is so funny. Full of funny stories. What's bad about them is that he tells most of it in Italian, so I have no idea what he said half the time. Highly reccomended. Had lots of fun.
