He is a qualified tour guide of Rome and next year he will be graduating in History of Art. He has been studying the history, archaeology, and art of Rome and the Roman world for the past 20 years.
Mauro has also organized conferences every year for the last decade about Rome at the Dante Alighieri association, the most prestigious Italian cultural association in the world. He also gives lectures for schools and other associations. His first book was published in Italy in 2016, Alla scoperta del Colosseo (Edizioni Helicon, Arezzo).
