Tommaso Montecchi is a BA student in Archaeology, History of Art and Heritage tutelage at the University of Florence and is involved in the CURBATHERI project for his internship, focusing on Public Archaeology.
Tommaso took part in several work experience projects related to the cultural heritage of Florence as a high school intern. Some of these projects, like the work experience at the Boboli Gardens or the one at the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, involved tasks such as elaborating statistics and detecting, via surveys, the level of satisfaction of tourists about the museums and their activities and services. The main objective was to collect feedbacks in order to improve the level of quality of the museums themselves and offer better cultural performances. Thanks to these experiences, Tommaso has improved his interpersonal skills and has become aware of the importance and the issues of preserving the cultural heritage.
