Born in Prato, where I got my high school diploma in foreign languages (English, French and German). I worked at the Tourist Board in Florence and Prato organizing international exibitions. After my university degree in Political Science in Florence I moved to Bruxelles as interpreter at the European Commission. Coming back home I worked as tour leader and licensed tourist guide in Florence, Lucca and Pistoia. I've been doing my best to introduce visitors to our extraordinary painting, sculpture, architecture and to the excellent Tuscan cookery and wine, suggesting unusual tours or by bike and on a Vespa scooter. Theater and music let me relax. Trekking still gets me in touch with nature. I still love my job and I cannot imagine any other one.
