DR DANILA BRACAGLIA: Historian and Professional Guide. 

"Transforming my passion into a job and a job into a mission" 

Hello Everyone, I am Danila, a battlefield guide, specializing in the Italian campaign and in particular from Salerno to Rome, including Anzio and Monte Cassino. I am uniquely qualified to tailor your historic tour based on your special interest including the experiences of your father, grandfather, uncle, or other loved one who was involved in the Italian campaign of World War Two.

I have a Master’s Degree in History and Archaeology. In 2005 I was certified, by the Italian Tourist Authority, to work as a professional tourist guide.

During my tours you will learn not only about the military battles, but also about the German occupation, the impact on civilians and what happened to the Italian army during those terrible months.

I have spent countless hours researching the military archives of the armies that were in action during the Anzio and Monte Cassino series of battles. I have travelled extensively through U.K. and U.S. and have been granted unique access to examine battlefield maps, duty rosters, and other relevant military data related to the Italian campaign.

I will do my best to show you the route taken and the obstacles encountered by your family member. You will come away with a great appreciation for the hardships they endured and the service they provided in liberating my Country. 

 What  I can do for you:

  • ·  Tracing the 1943-1944 route of a particular unit
  • ·  Arranging access to places not open to the public
  • ·  Acquiring more details about a specific battle or action

I also lead other kind of tours in Rome and surrounding area including organizing skip the line entrances to the Vatican  museums, Sistine Chapel, Colosseum, Rome underground tours,  as well as wine and food tastings to enjoy every aspects of the Italian lifestyle and culture.  I will be happy to assist you with your planning and give you advise to make the most of your trip. I am looking forward to welcoming you on board. Thank You.
