After completing her studies in Museology at La Sapienza, University of Rome, where she graduated with a Master degree, Valentina studied Art History in Amsterdam, Rhodes and Berlin. Her passion for the arts and archaeology has led her to work as an expert guide in Sicily, Rome and the Vatican City. Valentina is now based in Sicily but divides her time between Palermo and Durham, where she is pursuing her doctoral research. Her passion for Sicily has prompted her to do research on prehistoric heritage management and the enhancement of the Megalithic sites in Sicily.
