Raised in the Chianti countryside, I now live in the medieval hilltown of Colle Val d’Elsa. I grew up in a family-run B&B and so you could say that hospitality, as well as enthusiasm for sharing the beauty of Tuscany, has always been a part of my life. I never tire of either.
My background is in anthropology; I have a particular interest in the ways people conceive of and shape their identities and nationalities, as well as in the "anthropology of food." I have long been an activist in environmental issues and in the defense of safe and publically owned water utilities.
At present, I am delighted to put my talents and interests to work with Tours by Roberto, helping clients to reserve quickly and easily, as well as accompanying larger groups whenever I get the chance!
