I am a Tuscany native and a licensed guide passionate about wine and gourmet food, especially gelato! I speak four languages including Italian, English, German and French. I also love to travel abroad and was very pleased to be selected to inaugurate the important exhibit "Renaissance and Siena" for the National Gallery of London. Among my many hobbies is my love of the cinema - I have seen more than 1300 films to date (and counting!).
