A free gift for you!
Are you trying to figure out who I am?
Yes, me too! 🙂
Here is what I have figured out so far:
I am a dreamer, a mother and an educator.
I am a voracious learner constantly seeking new ideas and experiences.
I long to help make the world a better place. Mostly I do what I can.
I am an Italian -citizen of the world- living in Southern California.
I am an enthusiastic creator of learning experiences for all ages.
I am a passionate advocate for children, equal opportunity and Mother Earth.
I am the founder of Cesma, a school in northern Italy devoted to teach the professions that help preserve and care for the amazing riches found within our cultural goods.
For twenty years, I have been the conductor of an amazing group of educators and change makers at Cesma and the chief inspiration officer for hundreds of young adults attending our classes. It has been an amazing ride working with those preserving our art, history and culture in places like Pompeii and the Vatican, for which I am grateful.
I am the creator of A Taste of Italy, a virtual experience of Italian art, history, cuisine and culture.
I find personal refuge in nature, mindful meditations, and (a lot) of good books.
Art, in all forms, amazes me, as the expression of the human highest potential.
Right action coming from clarity and calm is the ultimate goal of my life. I don’t always succeed.
I find eastern philosophies intriguing. I practice and teach mindfulness, and zen master Thich Nhat Hanh is my teacher and mentor.
I am a KEEPER of the FUTURE building connections from the heart!
I am glad you are here, and I am honored to meet YOU.
