TOMMASO SPECCHER

Co-founder of Berlincolor

Following my early passion for German philosophy in 2007 I decided to become a Berliner. Since then I have earned a PhD in philosophy, taught undergraduate courses on aesthetics and historical memory, edited and published a few books and never stopped learning about this city.

 

I now work as official docent at the Jewish Museum Berlin, the House of the Wannsee Conference, and the Topography of Terror.

 

Moving between theory and practice, I observe everyday how the memory of the Holocaust still innervates contemporary German culture. In the same way I see the traces of the Cold War course through the gentrification transforming the eastern sectors of the city.

 

But Berlin is more than its memorials and more than its Wall. Outstanding examples of classic and contemporary thought, art from the past and in the making, laboratories of international politics, a thriving street, club, and start-up scene: all these things and many more find a home in Berlin.

 

During my guided tours, I try to present this city as a vibrant crossroad, a symbolic and concrete representation of the world we live in, because understanding Berlin means starting to understand the nature of Europe that is so hotly debated today.

When I met Karin Gambaracci, someone who brings together an outstanding passion for culture with a top-class managerial background, I felt this was a great opportunity to take our common interests to the next level, and we founded Berlincolor.

 

Together we offer a highly professional service that allows groups, schools and private visitors to discover all the colors of Berlin, and all its souls. Check out our offers for schools, private visitors, and corporate clients!
