From a very young age I've been always passionate about ancient history and beliefs that gave birth to myths and legends. Horror & Noir comic books collector, I am in love with medieval hamlets and night walking strolls around medieval monasteries, gothic churches and cemeteries. From the town of Siracusa (Sicily, Italy) I landed to Prague, the most gothic city in the world where I've gathered the inspirations to create Mysterium Tours, that has been brought to life in a raging thunderstorm in March 2014. I am the Storyteller in Italian and it will be my honour to showcase my personal and intimate passion and connection with the old cities where you find us.

A daredevil, storyteller & an aspiring artist. I am an enthusiastic student of History, Art and the wonders of the human nature. I love telling and hearing stories, getting immersed in my limitless imagination. Since my young age, I have admired the beauty of Prague with its intriguing history, full of the dark tales that would make my heart beat faster from the excitement and a hint of fear. Conducting tours in English, follow me through the narrow, cobbled streets and I will reveal the mysteries and thrilling stories hidden in the core of this magical city.
A new resident of Prague, I have been teaching drama and acting professionally in the USA and the UK for as far back as I can remember. I hold a special place in my heart for medieval and Renaissance History, and performed as a cast member of the Maryland Renaissance Festival in the USA for sixteen years. It was there that I honed my improvisation and storytelling skills. I look forward to guiding our guests through the fascinating history and dark legends of this most magical city.
