My main research interest is on Magna Graecia and Sicily Archaeology, about which I published different scientific papers. I was also assistant to the Chair of Greek and Roman Archaeology at the BA Sciences of Tourism of the "Università degli Studi della Calabria". I worked as an excavation supervisor in Abruzzo, Puglia, Calabria and Sicily and I currently collaborate with the Syracusan Board of Archaeological Heritage.
I am a Licensed Guide for Sicily since 2014. What I love most of my job as tour guide is sharing the passion for my land with others and spreading my knowledge of Sicilian territory and culture. I am always delighted to guide my visitors into an unconventional world of food, wine and traditions. According to me a place must not to be visited, but felt and lived in all its multifaceted characteristics. This is the concept I have of the trip. We must not to be tourists, we have to be part of the society in which we stay, combining our customs with their way to live. I think this makes me a different tour guide, as well as the expertise acquired through my academic research and high-grade studies.
According to me "Sicily must be experienced, leisurely and in depth". This is the philosophy through which I live my island.

Alessandro is one of the best guides we have ever had--and we regularly hire guides. We also often do our own research before going on a trip. He taught us an amazing amount. I would use him again in a heartbeat. His english also is excellent and he is a great person to spend the day with.
