“Art belongs to everybody and nobody. Art belongs to all time and no time. Art belongs to those who create it and those who savour it. Art is the whisper of history, heard above the noise of time.”
Julian Barnes, The Noise of Time

Paola Lauro

Art Historian, Licensed Tourist Guide of Rome and Province

With a master’s degree in the History of Modern Art, painting, architecture, sculpture and history have always been at the center of my interests. I have the unspeakable luck of living in Rome, the Eternal City, and being able to walk through the alleys of the historic center, guiding tourists who come from every continent. Almost every day I seem to discover something new, perhaps because the fascination of art reveals itself around every corner of this beautiful city.

Francesca Corsi

I was lucky enough to be a student of Colalucci, the master, who in the same years during which I was studying painting restoration, was up on scaffolding giving new life to Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. I have carried out restorations, taught restoration, and given lectures, together with my tourist guide activities in Spanish and Portuguese. I enriched my education with university studies in art history. With me, you’ll experience an insight into the exclusive world of art, sharing my passion for colours, beauty, culture and history.
