Matt Italy

In a country as diverse and amazing as Italy it’s hard to pick a favorite part, but for me it’s the Emilia- Romagna region. One of Europe’s oldest continuously inhabited regions, the history here astounds me every time I visit. There’s a lot more to love though than just the past, including some of the world’s most famous dishes and luxury car brands that almost everyone has heard of. Months, if not years could be spent exploring the cities and towns of Emilia-Romagna, but in this week’s episode a true expert joins us to share what he loves to see and do in his home region.

Nicholas Montemaggi speaks fluent Italian, German and English, and is as well a passionate triathlete. Born and raised in Emilia Romagna he spent five years (2010-2015) at the local regional tourist office where he was responsible for Digital PR and International Online Media Relations. Since 2016 he is CMO of iambassador, a digital and influencer marketing agency in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
