Nine years ago, I received a scholarship to help fund my studies abroad in Turin, Italy, from the National Italian American Foundation.
Today, I received a copy of their Ambassador Magazine in the mail with my article published inside: Holiday Gift Ideas, What to Give Travelers to Italy.
Please take a look, and if you are interested in anything about Italy or are planning a trip there any time soon, I highly encourage you to become a member of the National Italian American Foundation.
You can get a subscription to the magazine as well as the newsletter, among other benefits. A subscription would make it much easier to read my feature article as I cannot link to it, but the images above are the best I can do!
Keep reading for the Italy gift ideas I shared in the article.
