I’m Emilia and I like to live life.
After growing up in New York City, I moved to Bristol, England for university to study Italian. During my degree I learnt I was more intrigued by the mechanics of culture — about how we construct our lives through culture — than specifically Italian society. I spent an Erasmus year in Pavia, a small Northern Italian town, where I studied at l’Università degli studi di Pavia and lived with a family, teaching their three boys English.
Besides writing in this blog for four years, I’ve written for The Daily Meal and Serious Eats. During university I blogged about my year abroad for my department, helped launch the Italian department magazine, worked as Online Travel Editor for Epigram (University of Bristol student newspaper) and wrote a blog about studying abroad for Hotcourses. I also worked as a social media manager for Sweet Lemon Media from July 2013 – January 2015.
I’m currently working as a Sales Associate at Eataly in New York City. I will be studying for a Masters in European Culture and Thought at University College, London during 2015-2016.
