It was not difficult to decide what I was going to do with my life.

My greatest opportunity was being born in Rome, in this beautiful city whose existence since ancient times offers so much to those who can identify and appreciate its unique importance.

It was in Rome that I grew up, studied, graduated, specialised and have always worked and lived.

It was love at first sight for me. When I was a child I saw the beauty that fills the urban area of this incredible metropolis, its streets, squares, museums, archaeological sites, libraries and theaters, and fell in love with all of it. For decades I toured, met, studied, examined and loved the city.

Both in Rome and around the world, I have been lucky to carry out my professional work and meet many people who have helped me to grow. This personal development has sometimes been challenging, but I have always approached it passionately and with great enthusiasm.

Life has given me the opportunity to become the woman I am, and for this I thank those who support me and who generously give me their time.

I am thankful to those people who respect my work and allow me to express myself freely; those who believe in beauty, the beauty that fills the space between me and the universe.

The beauty that has led me on this journey so far, both inside myself and out in the world.

The “essential beauty”.

Officially founded in the 8th century BC (but with a much older history), Rome has been a power, destroyed, and redeemed many times. Its ancient heritage, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque period and the modern age are visible through the wonders scattered throughout the city.

An art historian, with a degree in modern art history, a postgraduate diploma in medieval and modern art history, both awarded by La Sapienza University of Rome, I am passionate about the art history of my city.

For years I have been providing cultural advice and working as a writer and ghost-writer.

Since I was a child I have loved to travel, alone or with other people, both in Italy and abroad, with a predilection for London and Japan.
