About The Italy Edit

Pool in Borgo Pignano

The Italy Edit is a digital travel and lifestyle magazine that showcases Italy’s timeless heritage and contemporary culture.

The Italy Edit offers an insider’s perspective to the Bel Paese – one that goes beyond the stereotypes and provides insight into the nuances of Italy and its longstanding traditions. Our mission is to inspire readers to discover the “infinity of Italy” through curated editorial features including travel guides, hotel reviews, lifestyle features and partnerships with Italian brands and businesses.

We believe that the best way to experience the beauty of Italy is to explore the country widely and slowly, taking the time to meet its locals, savor its cuisine and honor its traditions. That’s why we strive to highlight its small towns, historic homes, local artisans, family-run wineries and inspiring entrepreneurs.

The Italy Edit has a global community of readers, followers and contributors who are deeply passionate about all-things Italy. We attract travelers from over 100 countries, with a focus on US (42%), Italy (20%), UK (7%), Canada (4%) and Australia (3%).
