Born and raised in Rome, Alessandro has a great passion for art and archaeology and he loves to show the tourists all the beauties of the eternal City, from the biggest and most famous monuments to the lesser known and most particular places. He got a master's degree in classical archaeology from La Sapienza University of Rome, but formerly, when he was still a student, he has worked in art exhibitions for 15 years, in many of the main museums of Rome, such as: Palazzo Venezia, Palazzo Barberini, Galleria Spada, Galleria Colonna, Galleria Borghese, Castel S. Angelo, Palazzo Giustiniani, Museo degli Strumenti Musicali, Galleria Corsini, Palazzo Ruspoli, Palazzo Cipolla. This experience gave him the opportunity to expand his background in art history and to collect a lot of anecdotes and curiosities bound to the history of many churches, squares, characters and historical figures.
Being very passionate about ancient greek and latin language, which he has studied in high school and university, he likes to point out the origin and the etymology of a lot of words and terms that are still in use in the current languages. His guided tours will underline to what extent the life we live today is solidly rooted in the inheritance we get from the past civilizations.
