Ciao, we are VIA Magazine.
The first, all-English travel and lifestyle publication for international visitors looking for a special kind of travel experience
Hi! I’m Eleonora, the ideator behind VIA Magazine. When I first came to Puglia almost five years ago, I was left mesmerized, enchanted, and equally curious about why there was no information in English for the kind of traveler like myself. I started this project on a whim in 2019 as a pilot publication as a way of sharing the experiences I had acquired during my one-year travels here with my partner. The project – which is not about me but exclusively about Puglia – has since evolved and grown organically in interest, content, and support with two print issues and digital publications.
There is a lot of work to do in promoting Puglia the right way, which means, my sleeves are rolled up and my mind is full of ideas that I look forward to sharing and proposing during your stay here. I have written many of the earlier stories and then took on several freelance writers to help me out as the publication grew. Nowadays I am working on a new strategy, but also invite people to contact me with their hospitality projects, services, or special products with which we can share with visitors. My latest initiative post-pandemic is the VIA Magazine #shortcast, inspiring interviews/conversations with the movers and shakers in the region. One of the things you’ll see more of is beauty and fashion in Puglia with my reviews of collections, people, outfits, products, and fashion events.
Everybody’s a work in progress.RENEE FLEMING
