My name is Danila. I am an historian and a battlefield guide, specializing in Monte Cassino, Anzio, Salerno and Rome. My background is a Masters in History followed by WW2 studies focused on the Italian Campaign. The Monte Cassino battlefields tours are led exclusively by myself, only in English language, that's my field of expertise.

I have been selected by the Academy of West Point to lead battlefield tours in the Cassino area and have also arranged tours for other relevant Military Organizations including NATO. I am an Historical Consultant for the BBC and member of the Italy Star Association. I have organized several memorial tours for veterans and their families. I was the first historian to lead battlefield tours in english in Cassino, Anzio and Salerno.
