I have spent more than 20 years of my life deepening and improving my knowledge of the Italian culture, history and cuisine I have learned since my childhood in Florence, Italy. My goal was to learn to better my fellow Americans with my great Italian heritage. I have done this through magazines, books, lectures and seminars, printed and online. I strongly believe that
culture and spirituality are the
best tools to understand different people and civilizations. They are a very important tool to harmonize this everyday smaller world, to bring people closer and make our earth more and more livable. To work at this is what I love most, this is my passion!


All lectures are supported by images, audio, video and music.
The duration is 45 to 60 minutes plus questions, which are very welcome.
