Thanks for visiting Italophilia 🙂
I’m Ishita from India and I’m 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 and people! 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.
Over these past few years, I’m even very fortunate to have traveled in Italy and even made many Italian friends both online and offline.
In India, where a meager percentage of the population know Italian, I am honored to be able to bring two cultures close together.
I am also very thrilled to be sharing this adventure with you all! Thanks to you and your support, today, Italophilia is the Biggest and ONLY Indian blog on Italy! I hope you enjoy reading through the posts on my blog and share and promote it in your little world. Don’t forget to subscribe to the monthly Newsletters to chat more about Italy, travel and books.
