I am Jorge Giordano, an Italian-Argentine retired horse veterinarian. I always had a lot of interest in history and especially in medieval and ancient history. I have dedicated and spent a lot of time reading. I have studied several subjects on medieval history at the faculty of history and geography of the University of Barcelona. Among them are that of Universal Medieval History, History of Byzantium and Islam and Medieval History of Catalonia. With the passage of time and based on reading and tours of Barcelona in particular and also with the faculty, for their cultural heritage, it occurred to me that I could do them accompanying people and in fact I did several times with friends. They were very satisfied with what was seen and explained, which I asked them by detaching themselves from friendship and giving impartial opinions. I really like interacting with people and cultural exchange with people from other places.
