FOUNDER OF TOURANGO
Creativity. Excellence. Beauty. Travel. Puglia. That sums it all up.
I’ve been obsessed with tourism since my high school days.
After completing a BA in Tourism Economy at Bologna University, I moved to London, where I spent 2 years improving my English while working at Harrods. It was a great experience but my heart missed Puglia and I decided to come back home to Lecce.
Only through travel was I able to come to the conclusion that home is the place where you wake up happy in the morning, and Puglia is definitely my home.
Once back in Puglia, I spent the next decade gaining experience in the travel industry by working with local Tour Operators. During this time, I specialized not only in leisure tourism but also business and event management.
One day, I decided to leave my career behind to pursue a dream: helping visitors discover the beauty of my home region, Puglia, in an exclusive and transformative way.
Tourango was then created by combining my love for Puglia with my passion for designing transformative experiences and tailor-made, memorable journeys.
I love what I do, because – through hard work – I try to build my life around my passions. Taking risks, changing direction if necessary, studying constantly and always trying to raise the bar.
Love what do you do and do what you love.
Apart from Tourango, I'm a freelance Trainer teaching how to create original and innovative Transformative Travel Experiences, an expert freelance Business Consultant in Destination Management and Experiential Tourism Management (for tour operators, DMC, and professional local tourism experts) and travel startup Mentor & Coach for the Italian Travel Startup Association.
My local knowledge is also highly requested as a Location Scout to help media and publishing companies with original content, places, and material (international tv shows, the film industry, journalists, travel bloggers, etc.)
Finally I'm often a Speaker at important tourism events.
I’m always happy to hear from interesting and creative people, so feel free to contact me if you’d like to connect.
