Let’s Collaborate


for visiting,

I’m excited about the possibility of collaborating with you!

If you had a chance to check out my About page you probably have a good sense of the person behind the blog and why I’m so passionate about Italy.

I created My Italian Diaries to share the incredible beauty of my country, with a special focus on those hidden gems that are off the beaten path.

My travel blog covers all things related to travel in Italy and the Italian lifestyle. Content is created exclusively in English, tailored for a foreign audience.

I share itineraries, fun facts, and tips on various aspects of a destination in Italy, from cultural highlights to food and wine experiences. To further enhance the journey, I supplement words with captivating photographs that I personally capture, allowing readers to truly immerse themselves in the places I describe.

I work

Every single word you read on this travel blog comes straight from me in an honest and transparent way. No fancy filters or sneaky sponsored ads, just pure, unadulterated Italian tales and experiences.

I’m not here to sell anything, the only influencing I aim to do is to inspire others to travel to Italy.

If I accept a paid collaboration, it’s because I genuinely believe in the project and its ability to enhance the travel experience of those who read this blog. Similarly, if I mention a service or product, it’s because I’ve tried it firsthand and love it.

I’m passionate about helping brands and destinations “tell their story” and craft narratives that leave readers informed and inspired.

teaming up with me

Still not sure why you should team up with me? Here are 3 good reasons:

As an Italian writing about Italy in English, I can tailor messages for international audiences with an authentic local angle that foreign content creators often lack for obvious reasons.

I’ve spent over a decade working in the marketing and communication departments of multinational companies prior to freelancing, learning the ropes across a wide range of activities, from brainstorming sessions to campaign launches. Now I’m happy to bring that expertise to the table for all sorts of exciting projects to promote Italy.

The best compliment I frequently receive is when people describe me as a nice person to work with. After all, let’s face it – at the end of the day the magic ingredient of any successful project lies in the chemistry and collaboration among the professionals involved, right?
