5 REASONS TO WORK WITH ME


1) I’m a great writer
My education meets my attitudes: a background in classical studies in Italy (humanistic subjects) + a certificate of proficiency in English. It follows that I can write accurate and creative articles in both languages.
2) I take amazing photos
As an architect I am well trained in terms of composition and perspective and I’m also proficient in post-production programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom. Beside that I’ve attended some photography courses and one of my pictures of Dubai has been published on the Italian architecture magazine rivista Ponte 6/2014.

3) My readers trust me
By building an intensely personal travel photo blog and communicating often with my readers, they have developed a trusting relationship with me. By rejecting most of sponsored content offers, I only features products that I’ve enjoyed and that are coherent with my target.
4) After 3,5 years of blogging I’m familiar with SEO
I’m able to write content that shoots to the top of the search engine results pages. All the Italian articles I’ve written in 2017 are near the top for a certain phrase. If you would like to be found on google, I can make it happen.
5) I deliver results
Thanks to my endorsements, many readers have followed in my footsteps, from visiting the same destinations to choosing the same related experiences. Combine that with my content ranking high in search engine results, as well as a wide social media network, I can bring you business.
