How did you get into your profession?
It all started back in 2011, when I was living in London, with a blog about the city, mainly for the Italian readership. Eight years later, here I am, together with my team, running a network of ten destination sites in three languages. I can’t wait to go back to London, where it all started, to talk about what I do will be simply amazing!
What is one of your proudest blogging/YouTube moments?
In 2016, while working to expand our network of travel guides, we realized what the travel industry was missing: a digital platform for visitors to compare tours as activities normally scattered in various marketplaces. We worked hard and in June 2017 we launched Vivi City – the first search engine for travel experiences and attraction tickets! Definitely my proudest moment.
Which YouTuber or blogger would you like to switch places with for a day?
One of my favorite travel blogger is Shivya Nath, from India. Her approach to sustainable travel and responsibility as an influencer is one of the best things in the industry at the moment. I had the pleasure of meeting her last year at one event where her talk was one of the best, very inspiring.
What is one thing you wish you had had or known when you first started out?
I wish I had started attending events like BorderlessLive earlier! I’ve personally met some of the best people in the industry, sharing knowledge, brainstorming ideas and feeling inspired.
Why should people buy a ticket to BorderlessLive?
For content creators I’m sure it will be one of the most important investments of the year.
The quality of workshops and events looks amazing so far! I’m sure it will be extremely valuable for bloggers and publishers working in industries and niches other than travel. Plus…it’s London!
