I took an Arts Management course and Simona was one of the professors.
I thoroughly enjoyed her lessons, which were well structured and full of information that she explained in detail, both in Italian and in English, which she speaks fluently. Simona is a great teacher and is excellent at interactively involving all the students and making the subject come alive. I also worked with her in the one woman show “Sea of Awareness” of an English artist in an art Gallery in Florence, Italy and one of the photographs Simona selected for the show has been chosen as the official image of the Hong Kong Contemporary 2013. Her skills and expertise combined with her personality make learning with her and working with her a totally fun, interesting and knowledgeable experience.

"I want to thank the course of Exhibition Design and Museum Display Organization as its focus on the UK current contemporary art events practice showed me the huge differences and opportunities relating to the Italian approach.
The investigation on the current art context in London enhanced my interest in the design of a cross-practice event, combining visual and performing arts and gave me both the the idea and the necessary hands-on tools to conceive and organize an original exhibition-event for my graduation project.
Also I'd like to thank all the teachers involved in the course for their valuable competence and, last but not least I'd like to recommend Florence, the cradle of art, as the perfect setting for an art course!"

"We had an expert teacher. Every step was explained. We did a pavane and galliard and at the end I was sweating. It was exhilarating!"
“ Fun! I have never realised there were so many variations on the steps. ”
