About Jade
Born in Paris, Jade moved to Rome when she was 6 years old. Half of her family is French and the other half is Italian (her grandfather was very proud of being a 6th generation Roman!) Her passion for ancient cultures started when she was still a little girl and it inspired her to study archaeology at the Sapienza University of Rome. Thanks to a scholarship granted by a foundation connected to Harvard University, she earned a PhD in Archaeology. She specializes in pre-history, specifically Egyptian Prehistory. She still regularly works on archaeological excavations in Egypt and conducts research projects. Her passion for Rome, together with her career as an archaeologist, inspired her to leading travellers on their discovery of the Eternal City. Jade is the co-author of the illustrated book for kids "Michelangelo and the dream of the Sistine Chapel".
