Cecilia's TEAM | about the guide

Discover Trastevere and Villa Farnesina during a walking tour guided by a guide historian of art. Trastevere is one of the most beautiful areas of Rome as it has retained its authenticity throughout the centuries and years. Very modern but attached to its traditions, its houses old shops and many local markets but also new bars and restaurants in the trend. Departing from your hotel or directly from the Trastevere area, you start your day by visiting the Villa Farnesina, once home of Agostino Chigi, the rich banker of Pope Julius II, built between 1508 and 1511 and still intact, with its Italian gardens, its loggia of Cupid and Psyche covered in frescoes by Raphael and his students. After visiting the Villa, you will walk through the narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants, and old churches such as Santa Maria in Trastevere.

Born in the picturesque city of Florence who influenced my passion for art, I moved later to Rome where I completed a PHD in the Academy of Fine Arts. After working as an event planner for 13 years, I decided to create an association which offers customized cultural trails in Roma combining history, art and craft activities mixing the ancient materials such as pigments and natural elements as legendary artists Michelangelo, Giotto or Raphael used to do. The ancient art is really at the center of my tours and I aim at seeing the Eternal City’s history reviving through the creation of a fresco made by a visitor. Today, my eight years of experience in walking tours, family tours and painting workshop enables me to share the best of my expertise and my passion for Rome’s history with curious visitors in an entertaining narrative experience. During my tours, I let the visitor being also an actor and enter in relation with the city of Roma and its past, culture and energy. With my team of archaeologists, restorers, art historians and tourist guides, I organize for you a trip back in time. Discover the main historical sites of Rome such as the St. Peter's Basilica, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum and join a mosaic workshop; learn how to create your own fresco on the Piazza Navona using ancient techniques; visit World Unesco heritage sites such as Banditaccia and uncover the secret stories of the ancient civilization while tasting the traditional roman gastronomy. PS : my tours could also be guided by Paola or Lisa, especially when they have to be done in English.
