Adele graduated from the University of Siena with a degree in Art History, and did her post-graduate work in Art History at the Scuola di Specializzazione, under the tutelage of Professor Enrico Crispolti. She lectures in public and private forums on the artistic and cultural history of the province of Siena, and leads tours of Siena and other parts of Tuscany. Adele loves to travel and steep herself in the cultural details of other countries. She has loved the art, traditions, grand cuisine, and the unique lifestyle of Italy since childhood. For these reasons, when she works in her own city of Siena, she pays close attention to the most authentic aspects of local traditions – from the famous Palio in Siena horse-race to the seventeen competing “Contradas” into which the city is divided to provide horses and riders for the race.
