I have been living in Bologna since my early years, when I was attending the “Edmondo De Amicis”, the first public elementary school built in the city dating back 1898. I then graduated in Communication sciences at the University of Bologna (the oldest in Europe!), with full marks and laude. In 2006 I founded the cultural association Geniusloci with the purpose to promote the knowledge of my region. I loved to arrange an edutainment project reserved to the children, giving them the opportunity to discover the history of Bologna’s waters.
In 2013 I decided to turn my passions into a profession and I became an authorised tourist guide. So here I am waiting for you to visit Bologna and its region together!
My love for Bologna and its region has grown bigger year after year. By now, every time I come back from a trip I experience such a comforting homey, welcoming, feeling.
The more I spend time planning new tours the more I realise what a rich cultural heritage Emilia Romagna has to offer. The chance to work in such an environment represents a heavy burden, but a great privilege as well.
Before becoming a professional full-time tourist guide, I was lucky to work inside two of the most amazing buildings of the city. Both secret jewels of Bologna. I feel that Palazzo Bovi Tacconi and Villa Guastavillani inspired my resolution to get the Tour Guide License!
Then I have to thank you my little boys. During all my pregnancy, I was definitely happy, confident, and resolute. That allowed me to study intensely and, finally, successfully pass the hard “Tour guide exam”!
