I was born and raised in Cortona, an art town of Etruscan origin that is rich in archaeological and artistic remains of great value. The fact that I have been living in contact with such a beauty since I was a little girl has given rise to my greatest passions: art history, archeology and, in particular, the local history related to my territory.
After I graduated at the top of my class in Literature, specializing in History and Arts, at the University of Perugia, I have been attending many training courses on tourism and cultural heritage management and enhancement, as well as several intensive English courses that allowed me to speak English fluently.
I have a long-term experience in the field of tourism and cultural heritage management, as I have been working for many years at the MAEC (Museum of the Etruscan Academy and the city of Cortona), at the Diocesan Museum and at the Archaeological Park of Cortona, where I was dealing with the logistical and organizational support for exhibitions and events, welcoming visitors, managing the ticket office and the museum-based education for schools of all types and levels.
Besides being a tour guide, I teach history of the territory and art history and I collaborate as Italian language and culture teacher in an Italian language school for foreigners.
I really love my job as tour guide and I do it with great enthusiasm and determination. What I particularly like of my job is having the chance to share my passions with people, be they children, young people or adults, trying to work out new tailor-made itineraries that can adapt to a variety of needs and can satisfy the curiosity and expectations of everyone. Moreover, through my job, I can easily get in touch and get to know new people coming from all over the world, which is a cultural and personal enrichment opportunity for me.
