Ravenna is where I was born and spent most of my life. When I was a kid, my father used to tell me lots of stories about our hometown. That is probably what made me dream, very young, to become a guide: to show everybody the treasures of my town and tell the stories I heard about them.
Later on, thanks also to my degree in history (University of Bologna), I started to carry out researches in archives and I still enjoy writing about local history, geography, cartography and the landscape. I love travelling, I know Italy pretty well and visited several countries in the world. A scholarship as an exchange student gave me the chance to spend a whole year in the US - a fundamental experience for my personal growth - and that's when I started to speak and study English.
I also have a passion for the countryside, and together with my husband I run a farm in the uplands of the Apennines ridge, where I currently live, growing organic fruit and veg, among woods and springs of clear water.
It will be a pleasure to show and tell you everything I know about the places I love.
A Recent Review of this guide
Five stars for our tour of Ravenna by Anna M on December 6. Both Bill and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of mosaic sites in Ravenna and Classe. We learned so much about the history of the city and the church in the area and really enjoyed the visit to the contemporary mosaic workshop as well. What a great day! Many thanks to Anna for sharing her knowledge and love for the city and its art.
