LUCA PIETROSANTI

Art Iconologist, Expert Guide, Cacio e Pepe Savant

Rome, Italy

Proudly Roman (don’t tell my Calabrese grandma), for over a decade I’ve been sharing my passion for art, history and authentic Italian culture (that doesn’t include spaghetti-meatballs) with travelers from around the world. Ask me to reveal the hidden meaning of the symbols in the Sistine Chapel, decipher an ancient Latin inscription at the Colosseum, or where to find the best Roman street food ever created (trapizzino anyone?)…but my cacio e pepe recipe will remain top-secret!

ART HISTORY

Luca’s world of Art History begins with a foundational understanding of art in Rome through tine—a view from the West—in context of art, culture and innovation in the East. Luca, takes you on a journey of learning and discovery, together with your friends. Here's what we recommend:

Art in Rome Through Time: A 4-session course that explores Western art history from antiquity until now, centered in Rome, Italy, and presented in context of a global art history timeline that includes China, Japan, and the Middle East. 

 

Seeing Art: In this fun and informative 4-session course you'll learn 8 principles of art appreciation and elements of design applied to all the iconic masterpieces that you think you've already seen. See art now in an entirely new way! 

Art Around the World: Designed as a 4-session course, Luca uses online tools to virtually visit iconic artists' work in museums, churches and neighborhoods around the world. A revelation in Zoom travel, you really must give this a go!
