I’m a naturalistic guide and historian, I studied archaeology and I’ve always been passionate about ethno-demo anthropology. In the last 10 years I dedicated myself to the history of agri-food and archaeo cuisine.
In particular, I deepened the study of the Mediterranean Diet scientifically validated in Montegiorgio through the Seven Countries Study by Ancel Keys and Flaminio Fidanza, thanks to the activism in the association Piceno Laboratory on the Mediterranean Diet and its eminent associates (Siliquini, Foglini, Leoni, Liberati etc). The aforementioned study, which this year celebrates its 60th anniversary, led to the definition of the Mediterranean Diet as an Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO (2010).
In addition to these studies, I’m a guide and historian of the Franciscan Way of the Marca, included in the Atlas of the Routes by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism Activities, as well as numerous other paths including the Ascoli’s Hamlets Great Ring Route. I manage the logistics of fairs and festivals such as the Quality Fair which takes place in Montegiorgio and in the municipalities of Valtenna, the Mediterranean Festival that takes place in the most beautiful hamlets in Italy within the Province of Fermo and the Montelago Celtic Festival. Furthermore, I’m responsible for the foreign activities of the Piceno Laboratory on the Mediterranean Diet, I collaborate with the publisher “Il Cerchio” located in Rimini, I chair local history conferences in the various municipalities of the provinces of Fermo, Macerata and Ascoli Piceno and I participated as a historian in a television episode by Geo & Geo.
I carry out the main activities between Marche Region, Umbria and Abruzzo.
In particular, the National Park of the Sibillini Mountains, the Adriatic Sea, the National Park of Monti della Laga and all the hamlets scattered throughout central Italy.
