The creative mind behind ItalianBark
I’m a licensed Architect currently working as a creative director in my interior design studio in Italy and as a content creator for brands and companies in the design and interior industry. My team and I are often visiting and covering the main European design fairs to keep us up to date with the latest news and trends.
In 2013, I created the Italian design blog ItalianBark, which nowadays has become one of the most read Italian interior design blogs abroad and a top resource for new trends, as well as an award winning interior design blog.
The blog won the Amara Interior BlogAwards 2018 as the "Best Colour Inspiration Blog” in the international category, it was listed in the "Top Global 25 interior blogs" by The HuffPost and featured as the "top Italian interior Instagram profiles to follow" by Vogue Australia, besides being cited in various papers and online publications.
