Alessio Renzetti

Hiker environmental guide - Archaeologist

Walking, telling, discovering: an open book called "landscape"

Alessio is an environmental hiking guide and archaeologist. His vocation is to narrate history by observing nature and the landscape.

Born in 1983, Alessio was born and raised in a small village on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, in Umbria. A place where you can breathe tradition; where the landscapes maintain genuine, almost ancestral shapes and lines. It was precisely there that he approached archeology: in 2004 he abandoned a stable job to begin the long university journey which would lead him, after a few years, to transform a passion into a job.

In 2015 his "itinerary" changes again. He began to deal with outdoor teaching and tourism , specializing in historical-naturalistic hiking: he became an environmental hiking guide and his office was transformed, definitively, into a world made of earth, woods and tracks.
After several years of support, in 2019 he founded "Le Storie di Loz": a dynamic brand that now involves multiple collaborators, through which he offers excursions, mainly in Umbria, also dealing with dissemination and planning.

“I can't help but see the mountain and the hill as two worlds separated by time: one – the mountain – never fully conquered by man; the other - the hill - now devoid of natural corners, shaped as it has been for millennia
of history.
Even the mountains, since time immemorial, have no longer been a perfectly natural context. It is perhaps the first place where man has left traces; in caves, in ravines, in shelters. A place of hunting and fighting, of escapes along the ridges and across the great pass routes... But in the mountains nature always manifests itself in a powerful way and allows itself to be shaped less. If you think about it, it is precisely in this that lies the origin of that ancestral charm of the mountain environment: from there comes that undeniable wind of mystery that blows between the rocks, meadows and trees, and that caresses the high peaks. There is nothing more universal: the mountain is the place of the soul.”
