Teresa Baldi, daughter of veteran WT Trip Leader Stefano Baldi, was born in 1987 and grew up on a farm owned by her family on the hills surrounding Florence. In between her studies in art history at the University of Florence and helping on the farm, a working agriturismo, she is employed weekends at a nearby first-class restaurant, where she developed a passion for good food and wines. “It was great for me to grow up on a farm with plenty of animals and fantastic trails to explore and, at the same time, have the opportunity to study the beauty of art right in the streets of my home town. A hop on the bus and you step from nature to the glories of the Renaissance.”
Teresa enlivened the group with her wit, energy, constant attention, and knowledge.
Teresa made an excellent second team leader. She was funny, energetic, and very supportive of the group. Her sunny smile and enthusiasm were delightful.
