Teaching Philosophy
As a lecturer in business I love the application of major business principles to the local context of Florence. This is where we see a rich fusion of historical and dynamic business types vying for a future.  My lecture style is one of using cases to develop theoretical and practical business principles.

Most Rewarding Moments
Taking students to a leather tannery in Empoli, which is ran by one of my ex-students and following the supply chain through to Gucci, Prada and Ferragamo.
