Who I am

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

This paper allows me to introduce myself to you briefly.

I had taken a degree in Classical Archaeology at the Università degli Studi of Milan with a thesis on roman iconography relative to clothing, hair styling and ornaments in julian-claudian dinasty (1st century  A.D.). After the degree I came to Rome to realize my dream to stay near what I had studied and love.

I attended a biennial master in “Museum maintenance and Utilization of Archaeological Property” at the Roma 2 Tor Vergata University and a specialization course in “Management of Cultural Property” at Luiss Management University.

Afterwards I started to collaborate with the Sovrintendenza Archeologica Lazio on occasion of the exhibition about “ Fashion and Beauty in Ancient Italy” and I carried out a project of Museum didactics for junior and upper classes at the Museo Civico of Albano Laziale.

I had been scientific responsible of the project AST’ARTE carried out for the Ministero dei Beni  e Attività Culturali, the first Database containing thousands founds coming from the most important auction houses catalogues.

I have organized and taught Archaeology and History of Art courses at the Università Sperimentale Unisped since 2003.

I am a Tourist Guide certified by the Province of Rome and at present I’m in charge of organizing cultural activities as guided visits to temporary exhibitions, museums, archaeological sites, cultural tours around Italy so to joint art, culture, traditions to eno-gastronomy.

I work with several associations and cultural institutions as: 50ePiù Fenacom, Fogolar Furlan, Società Umanitaria, Club Atlantis, Cral Credito Artigiano Valtellinese, Cultural Association “S. Gregorio Barbarigo” and I take part of the project “Families and Culture” organized by S. Giovanni Bosco Church.

L'altra Roma collaborates with ACLI Provincial of Rome for the project "Enjoy a Sunday in Rome" financed by the Province consisting in a series of guided visits to discover the wonders of the city directed to foreign residents in the Capital.
