Proud Florentine by birth, I lived here all my life. I received my Master in my city and I have started guiding in 1997 after a short experience by Gucci that lasted two decades as a free- lance. I gave lectures and taught Art History for a variety of Schools for Foreigners but nowadays I just work as a tour leader throughout Tuscany and as official guide mostly. I am married to Alessandro Frassica, who created 'Ino, a gourmet deli known from panini and we share love for good food and wine. During my free time I enjoy being with him and my daughter and son: they inspire me day after day. I speak fluent English and I am French mother tongue.
