"I haven’t always had the passion I feel for art today. Growing up in rural Italy, art always seemed incomprehensible to me. But thanks to some great teachers, I started to appreciate it, and eventually, my interest grew. I ended up studying art history and now I enjoy a career sharing my knowledge with others. As a museum educator, I understand what it’s like to feel distant from art. That memory motivates me now to help visitors access the world of art and see it in their own way. When I’m able to share that precious experience with people, it’s when I feel most alive.
My favorite place to enjoy art is the Musée Jacquemart-André. It’s a private residence transformed into a museum. Its outstanding collection of European art is displayed just as you would find art at home, which means you can connect with it in a more casual, personal way.
