Start Here: Unveiling Italy’s Wonders with LearnItalianPod

Ciao, and welcome to LearnItalianPod! If you’re new to the site, you’ll find everything you need to get started on this page.

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 better opportunities and a brighter future.

Exploring my hometown of Bologna, Italy

When I first set foot on American soil, 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.

Our Mission: Sharing the Joys of Italian Culture

We want to help you immerse yourself in the Italian way of life, discover authentic Italian cuisine and wine, explore breathtaking travel destinations, and learn the enchanting Italian language.

The Journey of LearnItalianPod

In 2005, we launched LearnItalianPod, a podcast offering free Italian language lessons and a premium membership for those who wanted to improve their Italian.

As one of the first podcasts of its kind, LearnItalianPod quickly gained popularity, amassing over 28 million downloads over the years (proof below).

Recognizing the growing interest in Italian culture and the evolving needs of our audience, we decided to expand and rebrand LearnItalianPod in 2022.

We transformed it into an all-encompassing hub for everything Italian. Today, our website is a treasure trove of Italian lifestyle, culture, food, wine, travel, and language resources.
