I am a professional travel designer and advisor, I am a professional tour manager and I am the founder of Italian Flavours. I am Sardinian and I have been head-over-heels in love with Italian culture and gourmet traditions since I was a little child. I always felt my mission was to dedicate my life to share the beauty and uniqueness of the most authentic Italian traditions, as well as food & wine culture, in one word, the real soul of Italy. I graduated in Italian Literature and I attained a Masters degree in Gourmet and Quality Food at the renowned University of Florence, where I had the chance to deepen my knowledge about the history and quality of Italian gourmet food products. I collaborated with the Tourist Board of my city, Oristano, and I worked as a senior quality consultant for 10 years. After many years working in the field, I decided to put these experiences to use and I founded my first company, Sardinia Flavour, with the aim of making people all over the world know and taste the most precious and traditional delicacies of my beloved Italy. The inspirational experience with Sardinia Flavour allowed me to get in touch with the best Italian artisans, who pass down the generations old and fascinating traditions, as well as the leading Italian food laboratories, wineries and gourmet restaurants, allowing me to create a network of precious jewels, the ones you are going to visit during the exclusive travel experiences I create every year with Italian Flavours.

Working on tailor-made tours is my passion, the variety of experiences I offer are several, but I have a peculiar passion for transformational travel experiences, journeys where my guests can discover places definitely off the beaten track, but where they also have the chance to re-discover themselves and experience life-changing emotions they will bring with them forever. These journeys are a match between wellness and spirituality, Nature is the main character in those experiences. I also have a palette of active tours where my guests can experience exciting walking itineraries as well as excursions and trekkings over easy mountain paths, mule tracks, rural and secondary roads, cypress-lined dirt roads or those shaded by majestic pines, always accompanied by professional guides. And if you are brave enough, in my tours you can also challenge yourself in indomitable raftings, paragliding or exciting excursions in the most amazing, secluded caves in Italy, as for example the fascinating gravine di Puglia.
With my blog I would like to enable you to see Italy, its most untouched and amazing places, its culinary traditions and culture from a vantage point, the point of view of a local, as I am.
