About Periegeta and Anna Bruno

It was the year 1994 when Anna Bruno ideally started her journey in Rome and its environs as Pausanias the Periegeta (110-140 AD) did in Ancient Greece. In her periegesi (from the ancient greek word periegeomai ,I take you around“), she had “followers”, disciples and partecipants loving art, history and their symbology for human being.

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