Who I am
My name is Edoardo, and I’m from Carrara, a small town in the northern coast of Tuscany. I worked for more than 10 years in marketing and communincations for some of the largest international conglomerates and luxury brands.
Since childhood, I have been fortunate to travel a lot with my family. As an adult I realized how traveling was the perfect size for me. I traveled through Australia, United States and Europe.
I came in contact with many people of different cultures, learning the way they live and their customs, and I have friends all over the world.
I’ve hosted some of them at my house, going with them discovering the best places of my native land, which is located at a crossroads of different regional cultures between Tuscany, Liguria and Emilia Romagna.
All of them were fascinated by a land with so much things to offer: culture, art, food and wine, entertainment, nature and relaxation, all set in a typical Italian landscape.
What experiencing Tuscany means for me
I think that “experience Tuscany” is something more than visiting the well known tuscan cities, eating some pasta, or greet someone with a “Ciao“. It means to know aspects of the Tuscan life in its environment, it means to live life as a local.
In this blog I will lead you on a virtual journey through villages and cities that worth a visit at least once in your life.
I will suggest you travel experiences lending you my eyes and my words, to make you fall in love with a land that deserves to be known.
Are you ready to enjoy the taste of Tuscany?
How I discovered my passion for traveling
My first journey has been in Paris at the age of 7 with my parents. I loved flying by plane, so I decided to became a pilot once grown up. But when I knew that I have to study books and books of maths I changed idea because I hate it. So I decided I just would have been a passenger. At least you can have fun on the journey!
It’s in those years that I fell in love with traveling, and during all the 80’s, I travelled across Italy by car with my family, always helping my parents on planning the journey as “travelers” instead as tourists. We were interested in looking for the real life side of a place, cultural aspects and trying to find the real essence of the journey experience, meeting people who were inhabitant of the place we were visiting.
Where I have been around the world
I visited mostly of the Italian cities and regions, and mostly of the European countries, the east coast of the USA, and the East coast Australia, but I still call Tuscany Home.
