Meet Max: Founder & Italian Enthusiast
Ciao! I’m Massimo, but you can call me Max. I was born and raised in Bologna, Italy, before moving to the United States in search of a better life and greater opportunities. When I first arrived, my knowledge of English was limited. But with the help of a mentor, I soon realized that learning the language was critical to unlocking success. So, I dove headfirst into mastering English, eventually leading to a thriving digital marketing career.
With my firsthand experience in language learning and my love for my home country, I’m committed to helping you discover the best of Italy and its beautiful language.
