Thanks so much for visiting Italophilia 🙂 I’m Ishita, the Founder and creator of this website. I’m passionate about Italy & everything Italian. I chose the name “Italophilia” for my blog because it defines me completely!!
But what is Italophilia??
Italophilia is a quite simply the admiration and emulation of Italian lifestyle, culture and people.
In 2013, I traveled to Italy for the first time and completely fell in love with it’s culture! Since then I have been reading, writing and traveling to Italy every chance I get. Over the years, I also decided to learn Italian to feel closer to the Italian culture.
With a heart and soul connection to Italy, I often feel I was an Italian in some past life of mine. (Who knows!) But honestly I have no Italian blood or connection.
I simply eat, live and breathe Italy.
I’ve been fortunate to have traveled in Italy in the past decade and made many connections and friends along the way. In India, where a meager percentage of the population know Italian, I am honored to be able to bring two very similar cultures close together.
Italophilia is the Biggest Indian blog on Ital and I hope to continue to share my bits of Italy with you each month.
