“You see, my son, time here becomes space” – says Wagner in his Parsifal.
We could add that memory gives us always hope for a better future.  
I believe that travelling is not sufficient, and one ought to know how to see, since “the eye is the window of the soul”, as Leonardo said. Working as a guide, my aim is sharing the tools to understand and love our wonderful Venetian landscape and its history.
My background

Born in Venice in 1967, graduated in classical studies and political sciences, I worked and lived in Venice and abroad; licenced town guide since 2003, my passions are music, history and literatures.
My advice

Let us find and follow together the themes which formed both the myth and the poetry of Venice, let us confront them with our current reality and understand why they are still talking to us today.
