Work with us

Italian Notes is a personal blog launched in November 2010 by Mette Vaabengaard and Henrik Larsen. A Danish couple with a profound passion for all things Italian. With a professional journalistic background and years of experience in travel writing, news and corporate PR and marketing for airlines and tourist organizations, the blog was introduced as a personal project that reflects our perception of Italy and Italian food and share it with other italophiles. Over the years we have generated a lot of  experience in private publishing and the use of social media  for marketing and networking purposes.

We are based in Copenhagen but go to Italy several times a year for travels and extended stays at our rural house in Puglia.

What is Italian Notes
Italian Notes is a passion driven food and travel website offering inspiration, background information, news and advice on destinations, history, cooking and gastronomy in Italy. The quality of the contents are generally recognized with posts featured on eg. National Geographic.

We offer our audiences a blend of travelogues, anecdotes, photography, recipes and advice on Italy mixed with links to articles on Italy in international media. Italian Notes works as consolidating online guide for lovers of all things Italian.

Every year 43.2 million international tourists visit Italy, and more people all over the world have a passion for the country and the lifestyle manifested through a preference for Italian food, wine, design and other products. Italian Notes strive to keep this passion alive and active. Through blog posts and features readers gain a first hand experience of the major and minor sights, bizarre stories and quirky detail, while the recipes promote a healthy Italian diet based on local tradition and seasonal produce.

Italian Notes’ content is shared in an interactive community that covers blog, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, StumbleUpon, and other social networks.

Advertising We don’t generally do old fashioned advertising banners, but would love to discuss any ideas or wishes you might have.

Sponsored Content  Sponsored features, guest posts and product reviews are accepted subject to editorial guidelines.

Partnerships If you represent an Italian travel or food brand, I would love discuss possible partnerships to promote your product or destination throughout Italian Notes’ publications and social media platform. It could be through a sponsorship package that includes product endorsements, blog posts and social media promotion.

Press Trips We do occasionally participate in sponsored press trips, when the programme is in line with the idea behind Italian Notes. Relevant activities on press trips are marketed through a series of blog posts and features over an extended period of time combined with intensive social media shares.
