Alessandro Scali is a man graduated with full marks in Literature and with ten years of experience in the field of advertising and communication. Tired of always having to deal with budgets, low gratification, precarious and poor prospects and low-level professional competition, at some point he chooses to change his life and profession and reinvents himself babysitter, indeed baby tutor.

In the United States and Great Britain, such news would not have caused a sensation. There is a long tradition of Mannies in the business world. Mannies, union of man and nanny, means, in fact, baby sitter declined in the male.

Un baby sitter is it perhaps a bizarre choice, in the face of which many mothers would turn up their noses? Scali himself offers a new point of view in a letter published on the Corriere blog: "pediatricians and childhood experts have long encouraged the choice of a male figure, with a view to offering the child an anthology of educational models . The choice of a 'male babysitter' is even more important if the mothers are single or if the fathers are absent because they are taken from work or separated ".

But where does Scali's passion for children come from? He says he had an epiphany in 2022 when his son Ludovico was born. At that moment the interest and passion for the world of childhood reappears strongly and is not confined to domestic walls, but becomes a springboard to embark on a new professional and human adventure.

Thus was born his site Baby Tutor through which it offers not only childcare services, just like any babysitter, but also activities to do outside the home, such as accompanying children to the museum or to the cinema, or even educating them to use the Internet in an informed and safe way.
In short, much more than a simple nanny.
