I am an authorized guide of Rome and its province and for more than 20 years I have been involved in the illustration of the treasures of Rome with dedication and passion for cultural diffusion. In addition to a first degree in Political Science, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Art History and another in Classical Archaeology. I like to tell the history and art of Rome, always trying to stimulate the attention and curiosity of the participants in my tours.
