I'm an historian gradueted at university in Italy with honnerus; during my study and work activity i've realised some cultural project about the history of some district of Rome, like Pigneto and Torpignattara. I would like to share my knowledge about the history of this beautifoul place with my guests, let them know ancient monuments, street-arts paintings, and historical events occurred in this hidden area of the city, just a few steps far away from main touristic attractions. With me you can discover an other side of Rome, and know better the place where do you stay during your trip here!
