The Team

Mike Fuller - Publisher

As the new Publisher of Italy Magazine, Mike Fuller is re-visiting his publishing roots from 25 years ago. Mike was the former publisher of Student Travels Magazine between 1995-1999 and during that same period developed a number of custom publishing projects for the British Tourist Authority including Britain on a Budget as well as special supplements aimed at the 50+; the gay and lesbian; and, the honeymoon markets. A native of Montreal, Mike currently resides in Boston but travels extensively to Italy where he spends most of his time in his favorite city – Rome. Mike has been visiting Italy for over 35 years and traveled from north to south several times but his biggest regret so far is that he has yet to make it to Sicily – something he is looking forward to addressing very soon!

 

Georgette Jupe - Editor

Georgette is an American social media strategist, blogger of 'Girl in Florence', and online copywriter. After studying abroad in Florence for one year in 2005, she found her way back to il bel paese where she has since worked for several online publications, print magazines and an excerpt in the latest edition of Where the Locals Go by the National Geographic. She is a certifiable ‘Tuscan Texan’ living and breathing all things Italy. Social inside and out, she lives in the moment and eats way too much pasta - she is the new social media & community manager at Italy Magazine. You could say that curiosity is her ‘drug’ of choice.
