I was born in Venice and received a degree in Oriental Languages and Literatures from Ca' Foscari University in Venice.
I lived in Japan where I perfected Japanese language and culture and became passionate about ceramics, tea ceremony and Zen culture. Back in Venice, I immersed myself in the study of Western art and have been working as a guide since 2000.
I am fascinated by the relationship between art and people, and in my visits I try to bring to life the stories of the men of the past, their passions, weaknesses and hopes. I am a founding member of OTS and believe that unveiling the beauty of our city and making visitors appreciate the uniqueness of Venice and its lagoon is a rare privilege.
I have been working with FAI for years to safeguard and enhance our heritage.

A Lio Piccolo 12.000 alberi lungo gli argini di valli da pesca abbandonate.
Un bosco in grado di “produrre” più di diecimila pesci ogni anno nelle acque sottostanti.
La località è Lio Piccolo, nella laguna veneziana vicina all’aeroporto del capoluogo veneto. Luogo dove sta nascendo un bosco in grado di “produrre” più di diecimila pesci ogni anno nelle acque sottostanti.
Proprio con questo obiettivo sono cominciati i lavori di messa a dimora di 12.000 alberi lungo gli argini di valli da pesca abbandonate, antiche vasche di popolamento e riproduzione di pesce che sfruttano esclusivamente fenomeni naturali, con lo scopo di restituire funzionalità e biodiversità all’area di 15 ettari in disuso da decenni.
A dare il via all’iniziativa è Etifor, spin-off dell’Università di Padova, grazie a una massiccia adozione di oltre 5000 piante da parte di Lagardère Travel Retail Italia e di centinaia di cittadini sull’apposita piattaforma per progetti speciali di riforestazione www.wownature.eu.
“L’iniziativa mira a piantare 50.000 alberi nei prossimi 5 anni – spiega Lucio Brotto di Etifor – e in un decennio stimiamo una produzione aggiuntiva di oltre 100.000 pesci grazie al solo contributo della foresta protettiva disposta a filari lungo gli argini. Costruire da zero un nuovo bosco consente di sceglierne la funzione specifica, in questo caso quella di custodire e soprattutto incentivare la biodiversità, tanto in terra quanto in acqua”.
“Si tratta di un progetto avanguardistico – aggiunge Andrea Arrighi, Vice President Human Resources & Organization di Lagardère Travel Retail Italia – per la sua duplice finalità: da un lato la messa a dimora di migliaia di nuovi alberi lungo gli argini di valli da pesca abbandonate e dall’altro il miglioramento delle funzionalità legate all’allevamento ittico, valorizzando, contestualmente, antiche tradizioni lagunari”.
“Il nostro intervento sul piano della riforestazione del territorio – prosegue Andrea Arrighi – si inserisce in un ventaglio più ampio di azioni ecosostenibili, ad esempio l’impegno a prediligere sacchetti in materiale cartaceo riciclabile e proveniente da foreste gestite responsabilmente per contribuire all’impegno globale nella riduzione dell’utilizzo di materie plastiche”.
A non-competitive race immersed in the nature of Lio Piccolo.
A foot race immersed in the beauty of the lagoon, in a unique area where the beauty of the landscape blends with flora and fauna, both native: the magic of the Lagoon Run is back.

Participants in the race can be both runners and athletes of the Nordic walking and fitwalking disciplines; the registration fee is 10.00 Euros (for children under 12, free registration excluding the race pack), and the same will entitle you to use the refreshment points along the route and at the finish line, as well as a large race pack in a technical gadget and more.
