Guiding Principles

Sustainable Travel

With tourism on the rise, it's important to encourage more authentic and sustainable travel that supports local communities, small businesses and preserves cultural traditions. Better travel is a win-win situation so I try to promote cultural awareness in my work.

Inside-Out Perspective

Thanks to my Italian and American heritage, I'm able to experience Italy as an insider and an outsider at the same time. This unique position helps me sift through the country's vast patrimony and communicate its complexities to an international audience.

Social Good

I'm inspired by leaders who use their success to give back and make the world a better place through their work, message or philanthropy. My main focus in Forbes is to highlight individuals and initiatives that champion social causes, sustainability and cultural preservation.
