I’m a Milan-based author, journalist, content writer, copy editor and photographer.
I write about travel, food, culture and the arts, and mainly about Italy. I’ve written about major cities such as Rome, Milan, Turin, Florence and Bologna and regions such as Tuscany, the Aosta Valley, Liguria and Lombardy. I’ve written about café culture in Milan ( I write about Milan a lot), food traditions in Abruzzo, various local guides to Lake Como, the Venice Biennale, the Sforzas in Milan, mountains across northern Italy, and food pretty much wherever I go.
I also write about fashion, particularly Italian fashion history, and especially the women involved. Maria Pezzi, Rosa Genoni, Anna Piaggi and four generations of Curiel women are just a few. You’ll find them all alongside where to go and what to see in my guide to Milan fashion (published by Pen and Sword books in spring 2020).
I’m a regular writer at Italia magazine and The Local Italy and I’ve written for prize-winning online travel publication, Roads and Kingdoms.
I’m probably in my happiest state on a train.
