thank you for visiting my website!
I was born in 1946 in Alexandria (Egypt). My family moved to Italy when I was a child and I grew up in Florence. I remember visiting the museum of Firenze com'era* (Florence as it was) and being very much impressed with the changes which had occurred over the centuries. I believe my interest in fitting into the past the monuments and the buildings of a city started then. This is a picture of myself at the time.
At school in 1955
I live in Rome in S. Saba. I worked for ExxonMobil's subsidiaries in Italy and abroad for more than 35 years. I am now fully devoted to improving my website, which is a pastime and not an academic work.
The website is meant for armchair travellers and it does not provide guidance on practical matters related to journeys to Rome.
I will be glad to get any comment you feel could help in improving this website at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You may wish to have your name in its Hall of Fame!
* The museum was closed in 2010 and its collections were moved to Palazzo Vecchio.
