Federica Giacobbe

Languages:

Welcome to Scotland! I am from Italy and I have been living in this beautiful country for over ten years.

I moved to Scotland after having achieved a degree in History of Art in Rome as I was offered a PhD position at Glasgow University.
Being also an accredited tourist guide in Rome I have soon decided to became a tourist guide in Scotland as well.

I love my job because  it gives me the opportunity to transfer my passion for this country  while, at the same time, being involved in  a constant learning process.  

I am energetic and enthusiastic, I like meeting new people but, most importantly, I love what I do!
I have thorough knowledge of art and its history and a great passion for the art market.  My experience of working within museums, exhibitions and auction houses has usefully expanded my professional skills base. My strong interests are : Fine Arts and Architecture, Design, Monastic Architecture, Industrial Heritage,  Cinema, Ballet, Opera, fashion and luxury brands.

Also, being  currently  staff at Glasgow School of Art, I am  very keen in providing tours focused on Charles Rennie Mackintosh from being a student in Glasgow  to a world renowned architect; In fact “the European counterpart to Frank Loyd Wright” as Nikolaus  Pevsner described him!

 Whether you want to explore the Baronial style or admire the new V&A Museum in  Dundee designed by Kengo Kuma, I will be happy to tailor a tour which suits your needs as well as interests!
