Bellissimo quarterly magazine
In our quarterly digital magazine, expert insights elevate our readers’ Italian experiences to new heights. Each issue dives deep into a specific region of Italy.
Bellissimo’s mix of meticulous design and thoughtful content is a major draw for our engaged and curious audience. Readers enjoy in-depth articles spanning a range of topics, from rich cultural traditions and exquisite cuisine to travel adventures, places to stay and people to get to know.
Every page of Bellissimo is a visual treat, presented in vibrant full color. Whether you choose a half-page or full-page placement, your content will shine alongside our carefully curated articles. Plus, each placement includes a valuable link, connecting our readers directly to your world.
Italy Magazine’s established editorial voice and mighty team of experienced, Italy-based writers and content creators mean that you’ll be working with true insiders to capture what’s special about your brand. Our range of editorially led partner content options ensures you can find the best fit for your needs, whether you’re looking for immediate conversions, new lead generations or simply an image brush-up.
Sponsored content allows you to seamlessly align your brand with independent editorial content. Marked with a “Presented by” tagline at the article's outset and reiterated at the end alongside a link to your company, your sponsorship will be clearly acknowledged. Your content will thrive on italymagazine.com for a minimum of one year, with an option to renew at a reduced rate.
Alternatively, our branded content option involves more of your direct input. While sponsored content articles focus on a theme that’s adjacent to your brand’s offering, branded content incorporates your product more explicitly. You’ll collaborate with our editorial team to ensure that this is done in a natural, curated way that fits with our style and, most importantly, interests our readers. The article will prominently feature an “In partnership with” tagline at the beginning and conclude with a link to your company. Plus, enjoy the benefits of up to two do-follow links to your specified URLs. Your branded content will reside on italymagazine.com for a minimum of one year, with an option to renew at a reduced rate.
Partner newsletters, new for 2024, are Italy Magazine’s most exclusive, top-shelf offering for agreements that meet a minimum spend. With just one slot available per quarter, these bespoke, carefully crafted newsletters offer unparalleled visibility through the rare chance to make direct contact with Italy Magazine’s most engaged and loyal readers — our 85,000+ newsletter subscribers. Newsletters are developed in close collaboration with the editorial team, who can guide you through what makes our audience tick.
Real estate has long been at the heart of Italy Magazine’s operations, just as owning a property in Italy is at the heart of so many readers’ Italian dreams. Our most recent data shows that a staggering 45% of surveyed readers are actively seeking to purchase a home in Italy. Our properties section is dedicated to those users eager to bring their dream to life. Each listing has its own page, meticulously detailing every aspect of the property with high-quality photos, comprehensive descriptions and essential references. The platform facilitates seamless communication, as users can directly contact the property owner through the convenient form available on each individual listing.
Additionally, for those who want to move beyond individual property listings, our offers include:
Quarterly property digest: Feature your property in our exclusive quarterly email newsletter, reaching an eager audience of active searchers
Weekly property spotlight: Showcase your property to subscribers as the "Property of the Week" in our weekly email newsletter for maximum exposure
Featured homepage property: Elevate your property's visibility with a prime spot on our homepage
As Italy Magazine’s engaged readership shows, more and more of today’s travelers are less interested in impersonal, mass-market forms of tourism and are far more excited by experiences that bring them into direct, intimate contact with a culture and its people. You know you’ve got something these travelers would love — whether it’s a cooking class, a language course, a small-group tour or trip, an exclusive visit or something else entirely. But if you’re stuck on how to reach the right people, Italy Magazine’s Experiences section is what you need.
Reaching our discerning audience of highly educated, deeply curious travelers, our Experiences section features a range of listings, each with its own dedicated page. The page offers a comprehensive glimpse into the experience through captivating photos, detailed descriptions and valuable references. Users can connect directly with the experience provider (you!) through the convenient form provided in each listing.

What our clients are saying
“It’s been a true pleasure and a productive experience working with Alessandra and the Italy Magazine staff.
My ad generated excellent ROI and I am very happy with the results. Looking forward to continuing my
relationship with them!”
- Alex C., SerataItaliana.club
“It is such a pleasure to be assisted and helped by Italy Magazine to promote my business on their website
and social media. I have worked with them for a long time and I hope that in future, after these terrible
pandemic years, there will arrive more tours requests by their help.”
- Alessandro T., Professional Tour Guide
"We have been delighted to work with ITALY Magazine to promote Pomora's Adopt an Olive Tree program.
Alessandra, our account manager, has been both charming and efficient in arranging everything for us. The
advertorials we have run have enabled us to tell our story to a targeted audience and we have followed that up
with direct response campaigns in the email newsletter. We have seen directly attributable uplifts in both
interest and sales due to the activity with Italy Magazine and we are now regular advertisers. Recommended."
- John A., Co-Founder, Pomora Good Food Ltd.
“I have been advertising with Italy Magazine since January 2020. I remember very clearly the first editorial
that I wrote which was published and the amount of new requests I had into my Facebook group was
incredible (which is aimed at helping overseas buyers purchase property in Italy) which resulted in many new
clients working with me and using my services. The staff at Italy Magazine are always super helpful, and
since my first publication back in 2020 I have advertised several more times all of which has brought in an
excellent reach of new clients to me who are my ideal target market!”
- Nikki T., Founder, Italy Property Consulting
“One of the best magazines about Italy’s culture, landscapes, food, stories and travel tips. Italy Magazine
offers many excellent opportunities to promote your business through social networks, editorials,
newsletters, banners, descriptive cards of your services and other tailor-made campaigns. The advertising
and editorial staff is highly competent and always available. I recommend monitoring every single activity to
adapt it to your needs and to check returns (as well as brand awareness increase) which, in our case, are far
superior to investments. Congratulations to the entire Italy Magazine staff.”
- Fabrizio L., Co-Founder, Italia Sweet Italia
