I started loving the history of my region when I was ten years old, and I found a piece of painted pottery on a small piece of land belonging to my family. For the whole of that day I kept this piece of history in my hands. I remember that it was decorated with a black figured scene of a Satyr driving a cart. The feeling I had when realized it was a genuine antique object was very strong, and I started asking myself many questions about the people who occupied that area across the centuries and, particularly, about the man who made such a beautiful piece of work. Since then I started collecting all sorts of pots and stones that I found while I wandered through the countryside. I used to divide my finds simply on the basis of their shape and color. They were the first steps of me becoming an archaeologist.
Working with tourists is for me a delight, I receive great satisfaction comparing myself with people having diverse cultures, and at the same time I'm proud to show them the beauty of my region.
A Recent Review of this guide
Emiliano made our day at Pompei absolutely phenomenal. We loved his passion and love for the archaeological site. He was a very popular man saying hi to almost all the guides we passed...in our minds this was a plus! He answered all our questions without judgement and was beyond knowledgeable. He was a gem! Do yourself a favor and tour Pompei with Emiliano, he will take you back in time and make you envision the life that was once Pompei.
I graduated in Archaeology at the University of Naples, with a thesis on the obsidian prehistoric tools from the Island of Pantelleria.
I am currentely engaged in a PhD at the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen in Germany, with a thesis on the Copper Age in Sicily.
Archaeology is, therefore, my profession and my passion. In 2010 I took the licence to work as a Tour Guide of the Campania Region, and today I offer guided tours in Italian, English and Spanish.
