Guidi received his early training at the Scuola Libera di Pittura in Rome and in 1908 began working as a restorer and decorator. In 1911 he went to Rome to continue his studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti.
In 1913 he studied the work of Cézanne. During the decade after the war, Guidi painted modern subject matter in a tonality influenced by the Venetians, and gave his figures a timeless appearance by simplifying details of clothing and emphasizing volumes.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
