Lorenzo Cinotti @celestalis


What could be more photogenic and alluring than enchanting images of Venice? A multitalented editorial director, musician and photographer, Lorenzo veers away from cliché captures of the Venetian lagoon and instead presents its moody and mystical spirit through masterful shots of its foggiest days.

Sara White @sara_


An interface designer and photographer based in Rome, Sara has a passion for the city’s hidden corners, ochre tones and scenes of daily life. Her photos remind you that despite being a capital, Rome often feels more like a village with its winding cobblestone streets, overgrown ivy, peeling patina.

Davide Pretto @dvdprtto


Davide’s background in design and the fine arts shines through in his exquisite photography which transports you directly into his lush, technicolor scenes. Light emanates from Davide’s images in a way that feels 3-dimensional and visceral, while water elements are so reflective they generate a dreamlike reverie.

Rozhkova and Dmitrieva @walkingmilan


For a peek at Italy’s elegant north, look no further than the feed of two Russian women in Milan who take you on a visual journey through the cities of Lombardy. With a focus on architecture, this account showcases opulent villas, posh city streets and provides many birds-eye views that give you a great sense of each place.

Alessandro Bordoni @ilcavallopazzo


Le Marche’s once overlooked riviera has become one of Instagram’s main attractions thanks in part to Alessandro’s passion for photographing its dramatic cliffs and pristine coves. La Riviera del Conero and its lovely beaches often make an appearance in his feed, helping to promote Italy’s lesser-known coast.

Ciro Pipoli @ciropipoli96


Ciro captures the sunny and joyful side of Naples in his images of the city’s animated streets, landscapes and people. In his feed, Neapolitan characters are exuberantly captured in their element and you’ll find lots of stunning images of the Bay of Naples, illuminated at all hours of the day.

Peppe Vasile @peppe_vas

📍Scicli & Rome

A Sicilian transplant in Rome, Peppe’s feed features photos that transmit an irresistibly dewy rose-gold glow that heightens the allure of each stunning place he visits. Check out his account for a local’s perspective of Sicily’s hidden gems along with gorgeous photos of his beloved hometown, Scicli.

Oriana @itsoriana_


With a color palette of brick red and burnt orange, plus a healthy dose of images depicting light streaming through covered arches, Oriana’s feed could only be set in Bologna, aptly named ‘La Rossa’ (The Red). She captures lively street scenes and the characteristic architecture of Emilia-Romagna’s capital.

Emma B @hypoison


Emma’s photos have a deliciously melancholy quality to them, freezing a moment in time and simultaneously transmitting a sense of longing and peace to the viewer. Her photos capture the calm of natural landscapes and the solitude of lone figures amidst lovely landscapes around Italy.

Darius Arya @dariusaryadigs


Archaeologist, pro­fes­sor, and doc­u­men­tary host Darius takes you on a trip to ancient Italy through his photos of cultural heritage sites and monuments across the country. He catalogues remarkable sites and ruins and transmits his passion for history and preservation through educational tidbits in his captions.

Not My Nonni @notmynonni


Seniors citizens are a beloved, well-respected and integral part of Italy’s culture and social fabric. ‘Not my grandparents’ captures the older generation out and about in their daily lives: going to the market, chatting away in city piazzas and just standing around looking oh-so-cute chic in their vintage attire.

Ivan @Aivenn


An outdoor enthusiast, avid bicyclist and mountain lover, Ivan photographs enchanting scenes of Italy’s charming towns, forests, creeks and bike paths.

David Pinto @davidpinto_

His photos of the Eternal City always reveal a fresh eye, capturing well-loved monuments from new and different angles.

Antonio Spartà @antoniosparta
