Ad excelsa tendo. I aim at excellence.
I like working and having fun at the same time. It is also very important for me being open minded, respectful and sensitive to the people I meet, particularly if thinking of their religious and cultural different approaches. I do not like being in a hurry. I dislike also arrogance, bad education and inaccuracy. I usually meet my obligations and I generally dislike last minute changes. I appreciate punctuality and flexibility. A little bit of sense of humour makes sense to me together with sincerity.
I attended the local Grammar school in Mestre, named in honour of Raimondo Franchetti and I completed it in 1982 votation: 45/60
I have worked as a teacher of English (in the school year 1997/98) and I have passed a State board exam to be a teacher of Russian. In the past I have cooperated with several enterprises in the Veneto Region and in Emilia between 1991 and 1997 as a clerk and an interpreter dealing with clients and delegations. I have worked as a translator even before my graduation and I taught Russian for the Italy-USSR Association.
I am passionate about art, history, foreign languages, travels, music, food and dolce vita.
I would like to propose you artistic, musical, historical, environmental and entertaining tours in order to let you discover various aspects of living in Venice and in its lagoon.
