After travelling across Europe, I spent more than a decade within the hotel industry, inbound Tour operator companies and guiding foreign groups. These three types of experience have resulted to be strategic for my next steps in the travel business, where good negotiation skills, organizational capability and the attitude towards people are at the base of any action.
I conceived my company as “home”, relentlessly striving to maintain it on a human scale and focusing on building a team of close-knit skilful people committed to quality work, rather than quantity.
I handle my job with energy and enthusiasm, driven by an irresistible attraction for new challenges.
In 2011 I set off a Vespa scooter department within the company, which I’m passionately managing since then.
In the office I’m surrounded by unpredictable volcanic women, and when it becomes too much for me I suddenly happen to have to deliver a Vespa somewhere…
I’m passionate about kitchen, skiing, music and fond of my Gibson Les Paul Deluxe electric guitar from the 80s, which I cannot resist to play nearly every evening.
I do not miss any occasion for the ritual Friday’s Aperitif with my best friends inflamed by politic talks, nor to enjoy winter breaks on ski pistes with my son Alessandro.
Besides the mountainous chains of Northern Italy, Tuscany too has a hidden wealth of Ski resorts. Did you know that?
To me every day is a new adventure, starting from my home place. In fact, travelling the world I’ve learnt that you don’t need to look far as often the most surprisingly discoveries are at your doorstep.
Three qualities a good travel agent needs: keep learning, customers trust your deep knowledge of the territory; never loose your smile, there is always a good reason to smile when you are selling holidays; know how to listen in order to better assist your client.
Love jogging, especially by the sea. I’m a passionate novel reader, as I think reading novels allows you to watch the world with different eyes, a kind of travel without moving.
