About me

"When I grow up, I want to be a guide" N.Z

There are journeys that are done with a single baggage: the heart.

Good day from Italy!

My name is Nathalie Zaveroni and I was born in Corsica, the "island of beauty", better known as Napoleon's birthplace.

From my birth, my cradle was a suitcase because my father's professional transfers were reflected in frequent moves.

So I grew up with my suitcase that accompanied me around the world until the baccalaureate.

 

Without putting my luggage down, I then continued my studies by correspondence to obtain my BTS higher diploma in arts and techniques of tourism in France in order to realize my dream of little girl: to become guide lecturer and tour guide in Europe and in the world. I started to travel again!

 

Filled with the profession passion pair, I was perfecting my studies in Italy when my heart landed in Bologna. Without hesitation, I temporarily put my suitcase down to marry my Italian and passed the local Bologna tourist guide exam in 2003.

 

Without completely abandoning the accompanied trips, I passed the exams required to guide in other art cities of the region. The passion, the numerous visits, the continuous researches allowed me to become an expert of the destination Italy and an official, dynamic tourist guide, of Emilia Romagna.

 

This profession is a source of joy, exchanges, mutual esteem towards my fellow guides, shop owners, and all the tourism players that I meet every day and that allow me to finally feel "a casa".

Almost everything fascinates me... family, people, art, animals, wine and cheese, handicrafts, reading, history...

I regularly attend classes and conferences and collaborate with regional museums to guide art exhibitions. I guide for the blind.

 

I practice caving when I have time for myself, I paint and I travel... with my suitcase lighter and lighter:

Time has taught me that the essential is contained in our head and our heart: knowledge and memories...
