About Periegeta and Anna Bruno

The portal www.periegeta.it came to light in 1994 when Anna Bruno and some other collegues founded a cultural association of archaeologists and art historians. Deriving from the ancient greek word periegeomai, it means “I take you around“, as the association’s goal was guiding tourists in Rome, its environs and the Vatican.

Among their clients: Alitalia, Fimcantieri, Pfizer, Goodyear, Smeethkline-beecham, O.I.C., Fox but also famous people (expecially Americans) from cinema or television.

So Anna Bruno has taken around the Eternal city, actors like Mel Gibson, directors like Johnatan Lynn, music producers like John Esposito, writers like John Gray and the Nobel Prize for Peace Wangari Maatai.

Anna Bruno is also an official guide of the Vatican city.

Anna Bruno has published the book: “Anima Persa Anima Ritrovata. Periegesi all’interno dei giardini vaticani“, published by Palombi Editori, in February 2017, and for children “A prova di Sbadiglio. Giochiamo con il ritratto” and “A prova di sbadiglio giochiamo con il paesaggio” published by Palombi Editori, in October 2009 and February 2010. The books will be published in English soon.

In a few weeks her book Intorno all’Educazione all’arte, dall’eutropia all’eutopia, will be published by Palombi Editori
