Historical Walking
BIOGRAPHY
I am Giovanna Bossi Rosenfeld, a licensed Tour Guide specialized in Jewish Tours of Florence. Since 2006 I have led a team of Guides, each carefully selected for knowledge, enthusiasm, and a commitment to sharing the history and culture of Jewish and Renaissance Florence. History, art and Judaism are my three passions at the foundation of my training, which led me to become a qualified tour guide specializing in tours in Florence and Tuscany with a Jewish perspective. I was born and raised in Florence, where I got my University degree in Architecture. After significant experience as an architect specializing in ancient building restoration, I decided to follow my passion for art, history and Jewish life, culture, and history. First, I served as internal guide for the Synagogue and Jewish Museum of Florence. Then, in 1998, I was licensed as a Tour Guide of Florence, officially certified by the Regione Toscana. From the start I focused on customized Jewish itineraries of Florence and Tuscany. I have studied Hebrew, I regularly visit Israel, I am currently collaborating with the Jewish Community of Florence and also have very good relationships with all Jewish Communities throughout Tuscany, including Livorno, Pisa, Siena and Pitigliano.
