I live in the countryside just outside of Perugia with my husband and two kids. I work for a contemporary dance company based in Cortona. The most beautiful thing about living in Perugia is the close proximity between urban culture and breath-taking nature. I enjoy the thrill that visitors experience while introducing them to my favorite walking paths and trails.

I have been living in Rome working in the communications field for several years now, but I’m originally from Caprarola. I’m adventurous and love new experiences, living them to the fullest while maintaining a keen eye for cultural details and nuances. I hope to be able to transmit these aspects with whoever decides to venture on an itinerary with me!
Hi! I live in Perugia, I’m an Environmental Guide and co-founder partner for Officina Natura Professional qualifications: Environmental-hiking guide, responsible for the management of tourist services in protected natural areas, F.I.E. hiking guide, FISO orienteering school instructor.
I’m born in Cortona, I’m fluent in Italian and English. I lived in North Carolina, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. I now live in Cortona’s historic center and work in property management and as an occasional translator/interpreter. I love the arts, wine and cuisine, travel, the social exchange with people from diverse cultures and sharing my passion for and knowledge of Cortona with them.
Hi! I have been living in Rome for more than 30 years and, in spite of the challenges of living in a big metropolis, I’m in love with this city. I studied conservation of cultural heritage and I have been working as an art restorer for several years. I’m an art lover and hope to be able to transmit my passion to my guests.
Hello! I’m born and raised in Rome. I work in education and training.
I have more than 10 years experience teaching Italian as a second language. I also adore cooking because I find it relaxing, and wine is my passion. I have refined my knowledge of different wines by visiting local wineries, especially around Italy.
I’ve always been curious and eager. I’ve never followed conventional paths: I found what I needed at the right time and in the right place. This is also true of my experience with ceramics, which I was introduced to in 1994, and guided in techniques and materials by various potters towards whom I feel great respect and gratitude. I have a studio-gallery in the centre of the ancient town. I live from my work as an artist, painting both on paper and on objects that I either create or find ready to paint. My participation in events and exhibitions began in 1993 with a group exhibition in the splendid Girifalco Fortress in Cortona, and I’ve been holding solo exhibitions since 1997.
