About me

About me: il Periegeta

It was the year 1994 when I ideally started my journey or better my periegesi (from the ancient greek word periegeomai ,I take you around“) around Rome and its environs as Pausanias the Periegeta (110-140 AD) did in Ancient Greece. Since then I have had “followers” , disciples and partecipants loving art, all sort of personalities, famous and not famous, but all curious in terms of knowledge, mentally and spiritually. Families, individuals, students and..artists and from the world of cinema and TV, the most moving day for me was in 2005 when in June 29 I had the plaisure to take around the Nobel Prize for Peace Wangari Maatai and furthermore…

After signing an important contract with the Vatican gardens in 2011, I wrote a project to renovate the Vatican gardens together with the director of the Vatican garden at that time. Consequently, I published the book “Anima Persa Anima Ritrovata. Periegesi all’interno dei giardini vaticani“, (Palombi Editori 2017).

My endeless studies, masters and long experience in the Roman museums (here is my resumé) made me an Art Education in museums.  I published two books for children A prova di Sbadiglio. Giochiamo con il ritratto and A prova di sbadiglio giochiamo con il paesaggio (Palombi Editori, 2009 and 2010) and a book titled Intorno all’Educazione all’arte, dall’eutropia all’eutopia (Palombi Editori, 2018)

I conceived two projects on Art Education in museums: 1. A prova di sbadiglio (Creative interdiscipliary tours) for kids or families with kids and schools; and Oltre i confini: vedere (Beyond the bounderies, we can see) for adults and teenagers.

In 2017 she published the book Anima persa Anima ritrovata, periegesi nei Giardini Vaticani (The soul is lost the soul is found, periegesi around the Vatican gardens),  and on the following year, in 2018,  the book titled Introduzione all’Educazione all’arte, dall’eutropia all’eutopia (Introduction to Art Education, from euthropia to eutopia) which followed two books for children A prova di Sbadiglio.

Between 2010 and 2011, she was commissioned by the Vatican Governatorate a project to renovate the Vatican gardens, and a second project to renovate the garden of the cloister of St. John in Lateran.

The two projects that she carried out together with the director of the Vatican gardens at that time, Luciano Cecchetti, were approved by the same Governatorate in 2011.

An Italian article on the garden of the cloister of the basilica of St. John the Laterna, by Anna Bruno, was published in the Vatican monthly magazine All’Ombra del Cupolone, in December 2011.

She has created a project of seminaries and workshops on Art Education for teachers and Educational operators in museums.
