It all started in early November when we asked you to nominate your favourite blogs. We got an amazing number of nominations and reduced that to a shortlist of 4-6 blogs or blog posts per category. We then passed it on to you to vote your favourite blogs. Over 6000 votes were cast and the results are now in.

We want to thank everyone who took the time to nominate and/or vote and especially all the amazing people out there that share their experiences on their blogs and in doing so help us to learn more about Italy and keep falling in love with our favorite country! It goes without saying that we are all winners. We can’t wait to repeat the exercise next year!

Now, without further ado here are the the winners of the 2014 ITALY Magazine Blog Awards - Bravi Tutti!
