LetterArteMente is a made up word in three parts with a meaning that could settle in the hearts of all creative minds and travelers. I needed a word that could hold the charismatic images and poetic words that reflect the art, books, poetry, people and places that surround me in my life and work here in Italy.


LETTERe – Literature

My path in Italy is anchored in academia, with my formal studies paving my way with a specialization in Italian literature that still drives much of my focus and work.

ARTE – Art

However deep my passion runs for Italian literary history it is also true that I am attracted to the creative and artistic world and it inevitably found connections to present to me.

MENTE – Mind

Leading tours, and the continuous research that is necessary to personalize them, has allowed me to be able to draw endless inspiration in beautiful places and share it with others.
