When I dreamed about creating My Modena Diary project, I never expected to pick up immediatly “on board” someone else. Of course I’ve always thought that working in team is inspiring and motivating. I have always worked with teams. I don’t remember a project in which I was completely alone. I was grown up with the teamwork culture, I’ve played volleyball for most of my life and in this game team is everything.
So when, almost joking, I talked with Francesca about my idea and she was really impressed, I said to myself… “why not?”
But, let’s take a step back that I’ll tell you how it went.
I know Francesca since more than two years. I met her before online and then in real life during the Foodie Geek Dinner party that took place in Modena a few years ago. Francesca is from Modena but she lives between Turin and Milan where she works. When she can, she comes back her family’s home in beautiful Apennines of Modena, where she have left part of her 🙂
Her nick on the web is “La Gonzi”. Francesca is a foodie, simple and tasty foods lover, and has a blog, called Spadelliamo, where she shares her passions and experiences together with food recipes.
“I love telling tasty stories.
If you are looking for me I’m taking picture of something good”.
She doesn’t like defines herself simply “food blogger”, she prefers to describe herself as “a foodie that tells tasty stories online”. Actually, she shares online many full-flavoured stories and if you just follow her Instagram profile or her account on Steller, you are immediately catapulted into a world of involving narrations.
It was thanks to one of this stories published on Steller about hills of the Apennines that Francesca and I found ourselves united by the same desire to speak about our territory, the one in which we are both grown up. I told her what I had in mind and her reaction truly surprised me: she was excited by the idea, as if she felt My Modena Diary already in her area. It was the perfect project also for her!
You can imagine how this unexpected collaboration has made me happy 🙂
And now we are ready to hunting stories to tell you 🙂
Welcome Francesca! 🙂
