Travel & Booking Coordinator, Italy Team

Sharing my favorite places with our travelers, the indescribable beauty of my country, and the everyday stories of my own people feels too amazing to put into words.

I owe much of who I am to my grandparents. My grandpa Gaetano was, among many other things, a painter, a vintage collector and, in general, an extremely curious man. Grandpa Nino was born in Sicily and spent years traveling around Italy and Africa in his youth. Both of my grandmas, Ninì and Lola, were teachers, and all of them great storytellers. With their influence, I developed a passion for traveling, art and storytelling. This passion was honed at the Art Institute, where I studied Languages and Translation at University, as well as during my own journeys. I spent months traveling around the world and working abroad in California, Germany and Ireland. As it often happens, experiencing otherness through travel became a deeply-rooted need, but also brought me to appreciate aspects of my homeland I had missed before. Working at Ciao Andiamo gives me a chance to combine my passions and bring my own unique perspective towards travel.
