I am a 40 years old Tourist Guide with a range of skills including Fine Art. Since I was a child I used to spend my time drawing. Despite my artistic inclination, I graduated in Engineering and then I started moving abroad and working in many European Countries for nine years. During that time, I kept on drawing frantically in the spare time, at night. I attended drawing classes in Madrid and then basics of oil painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Como (Italy). I eventually decided to leave my permanent job in 2013 to pursue a different career as painter. Since then I started leading walking tours in Florence in Spanish and English, first as member of an Association and then as Official Florence Guide. I’ve spent two years in Switzerland, where I fell in love with rock climbing. My grandfather was a farmer and I grew up in the countryside of Cilento National Park nearby the sea, so that’s why I’m used to olive oil and wine culture! I’m passionate about food, particularly about organic and self-sustainable farming. I’ve attended many Permaculture courses. I lead Walking Tours in Florence as well as Museums tours (Uffizi, Accademia, Bargello are just some examples). If you would like to have a more specific tour please contact me. I love to bring my Customers to very typical less-touristic, quite, Italian places. Florence is incredibly interesting if you’re planning to taste good products and see the Renaissance masterpieces! You can get in touch first time with me by email, form and stay tuned on facebook. I’m happy to read your specific request and create the best solution possible for You! https://youtu.be/HNxKFG0M4HI
