Something about me
I fell in love with the idea to become a tourist guide when I was 16. I was in Paris with my father and we had a wonderful guide that made us discover the beauties of that incredible city. Then my inclination for history of art and the curiosity to meet always new people have directed my professional career.
I am always so happy when I have the possibility to share my love for my Country and the Veneto Region with my ‘tourists’.
So I decided to turn my passion into a job. I am a certified tourist guide (since 1992) fluent in English and French.
I can guide tours of any type for groups or individuals. My clients are travel agencies, tour operators, local industries, schools, private associations, individuals....
I have been secretary of the first guild of registered tourist guides of Vicenza since its foundation in 1993.
Before being a tourist guide, I was part of a little modern dance company. I had the opportunity to dance in some Northern Italy’s theatres. I also danced inside the Olympic Theatre of Vicenza, the Roman Theatre in Verona and the Conservatorio Pollini in Padua.
If you watch at the above slides, you can see me dancing inside the Teatro Olimpico and in the garden of a Veneto Villa
