“Minnesotan Mad about Italy”
Annie Ojile Nerone is a native Minnesotan born into an Italian-American family. She first experienced Italy studying abroad as a college student. She instantly knew that someday this country would be her permanent home. With a degree in both Italian Language and Culture and Apparel Production and Marketing, Annie’s post-graduate years were spent working in the fashion industry and media production. All the while, she continued to study the Italian language in anticipation of the dream she kept tucked away. In 2005, Annie was finally able to pack up her Prada and turn her love for everything Italian into a career as founder of Rome and Tuscany Tours. Two years after she moved to Rome she drove her first motorino and it was just a matter of time before she would be leading Vespa tours of Rome and Scooteroma was born !!
