About me

My name is Elena Guaitani. Born and raised in Bergamo, I studied art history in college and fell in love with Bologna during my student days.

In 2015 I got my tour guide license.. Since then I’ve guided tours, walking tours and art exhibitions.
I collaborate with tour operators, travel agencies, associations, museums and I’m part of the trade association Confguide Bologna.
Bo-up (BOlogna Unusual Paths) is my last adventure, a new born project whose main goal is to let people know Bologna from a different point of view. In this project I’ve put a lot of myself and my passions: art, street-art, social issues, culture.. So here I am ready to share it with you!

"It's red, I've never seen a red like Bologna's. Ah, if we knew the secret of that red... It's a city to return to, next time".
