Kalli Siafaka

Κάλλι ΣιαφάκαParlare Italiano?

I have been born in Athens  but I grew up in a small town of Phthiotida. Since I was a little girl, I wanted to become an archeologist and been engaged with History of Art. But when I was 16 years old, I decided to study Italian literature. I have graduated 5 years ago and I specified in History of Art!! So, i succeeded to combine both my favorite fields. In the beginning, I was doing private lessons and worked for various foreign language institutes, while later I entered the field of interpretation and translation. It was 4 years before, when I have participated in the Thessaloniki International Film Festival in the department of exhibitions setup. In 2011, one of my dreams, becoming a guide in art exhibitions, came true as I became guide for Leonardo da Vinci exhibition, which took place in Thessaloniki.  Leonardo da Vinci and I met again now, as I work as Greek language teacher for Italian volunteers who came in the organization in the framework of Leonardo da Vinci program. Ironic?
I am very glad as I watch them gradually learning how to speak and write in Greek and at the same time I realize how difficult our language is!
