Angelalea M.

Ravenna, Italy

Italy can be considered a widespread museum, due to its extraordinary richness of history, monuments, archaeological sites, and as an archaeologist I am eager to enhance public understanding and appreciation of this historical and cultural heritage.

After graduating in Conservation of Cultural Heritage, I obtained a Specialization in Archaeology from the University of Bologna and a PhD in Archaeological Science from the University of Padua.

In the last decade I have held archaeology courses for lifelong learners, taught Roman Archaeology and Art History to undergraduate students of the University of Bologna and designed and led study tours to archaeological sites and museums throughout Italy.
My commitment and enthusiasm has made the number of participants to courses and tours increase over the years.
We have visited Etruscan necropolises and ancient Roman towns, travelling through the ages to investigate social and historical processes, exploring great rulers or reconstructing the everyday life of ordinary people in the cities destroyed by the eruption of the Vesuvius.

I have started to work as a licensed tour leader in Ravenna and Bologna since I am keen about sharing my passion for history and archaeology and I would be happy to make my expertise and knowledge available for you.

I was born in Ravenna and I feel fortunate to live in this small yet charming town, renowned by its well preserved, amazing Byzantine mosaics. At Bologna, where I studied archaeology, I had the opportunity to experience all the cultural wealth of a town whose architectural and art history heritage is as rich and various as its gastronomic tradition.

I hope you can join me on my small led tours, limited to 7 people, designed to provide you with an insight into the history and culture of these cities:you will learn, experience, taste their beauty!

A Recent Review of this guide

Fantastic tour with a great guide. Angelelea filled in when our originally scheduled guide was unable to lead the tour. She is an archeologist and shared much historical information that increased our appreciation of the mosaics and other sites. She also took us to several mosaic studios. We would boost another tour with her without hesitation.
