Since 1990 - 21st February , every year all guides, all over the world, let people know what they do and the way they do it with love and competence, promoting their places in favour of local cultural and social development.
This year, as far as Italy from 16th to 24th February it was a great success. From Sicily to Val d'Aosta almost 200 different events totally free, offering special tours to everybody.
Tv and press promoted our initiatives and we are so proud and happy.
In Siracusa we had really a wonderful weekend last week, opening temporarily the new excavations about the Ionic temple, the so called Artemision in Piazza Duomo below the Townhall.
Beyond any expectations we had thousands of visitors and innunerable compliments.

As far as me, my WORLD TOURIST GUIDE DAY was a new experience.
WE reserved a special tour to the National Deaf Association (Siracusa's group) and with the help of an interpreter LIS (Italian language of signs) we visited the ruins.
New cooperation between the local Association of Tourist Guides from Siracusa and FIABA (Fondo Italiano Abbattimento Barriere Architettoniche- Italian Fund against Architectural Barriers) .
A special thanks to Bernadette Lo Bianco who so well represents FIABA in Sicily and made it possible.
New horizons opened to me!
To all my collegues
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
