Our purpose is to unite bloggers & vloggers based on our shared love of Italy, and to create a positive, supportive community that embodies the conviviality of Italian culture. Let’s share our dolce vita from the food to the language.
Very much like a virtual aperitivo hour!
Any blogger/vlogger who loves Italy! You may write or speak in English OR Italian.
Whether you are Italian, have Italian heritage, married to an Italian, or just plain Italian at heart! The only criteria to participate is that you want to share your love for Italy on your blog and support other bloggers who love Italy.
See the steps below to join!
There are multiple steps involved and we know it can be a little overwhelming at first so please feel free to get in touch with any one of us for more information!
