You will enjoy the emotion discovering nature, fauna, flora and geology with me. I have a degree in Natural Sciences and I'm a AIGAE Hiking and Environmental Guide for many years. I was the first woman to become Gamekeeper in Italy and I have done this work in the Orobie Alps for about twenty years. Thanks to this unique experience, in my work as a naturalistic guide I'm able to convey to the public my most profound emotions born on the paths of nature, with guided itineraries that allow you to discover those secrets of the natural kingdom that are not found on books, nor can you to imagine.
