Meet Noemi, keeper of the historical memory of San Godenzo.

For Noemi, the mountains are first and foremost home, but they are also the place that taught her to appreciate the little things, like the tortelli and tagliatelle that her grandmother used to make for her every Sunday.

Ever since she was a little girl, her wish was to ‘go away’ and find a job ‘in one of the great libraries of Florence’. But now, at the age of 28, she cannot imagine being anywhere else but in San Godenzo, the place where she was born and grew up.

A graduate of Archives and Libraries, she will soon be taking over the management of the books and documents of the Campana Palace in San Godenzo, a job that will allow her to study her own territory in depth.

Her story is one of deep attachment to her roots and love for the community in which she grew up.
