Silvia Loreti has since spent five years in London where she did her BA and MA in art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art. She first came to Paris hunting for Picasso archives, and ended up living here, a confirmed convert to the Paris lifestyle. She currently divides her time between Paris, London and Rome (her place of origin) whilst working towards her Ph.D. in art history with a specialization in Picasso, de Chirico, and the interaction between classicism and prehistory in their work.
Sarah Ciacci has lived and worked in London all her life, but pops over to Rome fairly often. After completing her MA in History of Art at University College London, specialising in late 19th Century French Painting and mid 20th Century Art, she has worked in different areas of the contemporary art world in both London and Rome, before deciding to focus on gallery education. This necessitated a far greater knoweldge base, so Sarah trained to be a guide and qualified as a City of London Guide and as a Blue Badge Tourist Guide in 2008. She now works as a guide, specialising in Museums and Galleries as well as tours for children and young people, she teaches courses in art history and the history of London at the University of Richmond and works as a gallery educator at the National Portrait Gallery and the Dulwich Picture Gallery, specialising in tours for older people and people with Dementia.
