Our Philosophy

Where it all began…

What happens when two Italian travel professionals, with over 40 years of combined industry experience, and a passion for the preservation of creative heritage join forces?

Meet Federica Baggiani, founder of Studiainitalia and Laura Notarbartolo, founder of Italian Special Occasions! Together they form the creative duo who founded Creative Italy.

Here they tell us about what inspired the thinking behind Creative Italy…

Creative Italy are passionate about introducing you to a different way to travel and to explore new places. The preservation of history, heritage, and culture is vital for future generations. We believe that learning these artisan handicrafts is one way in which we can help to do this. No matter your age or ability it’s never too late to get creative!

What We Do

Craft Experience Sicily

‘The traditional craftmanship and the techniques that we have here in Italy need to be preserved’ Federica Baggiani– Co-founder of Creative Italy

We specialize in showcasing traditional Italian handicrafts firsthand, through professionally led courses and workshops.

We are not a one-click booking engine for immediate availability and reservations. Instead, we invite you to consider what you would like to do, take your time, ask questions, and really contemplate the creative activity you choose.

In a world in which – with just one click – you can immediately book anything and instantly consume, take your time, and choose a truly unique experience. Immerse yourself in a culture and tradition worlds away from your daily life.

Our Philosophy

Our ethos comprises of 3 elements – travel, stay and learn


Travel and get to know the real Italy. Vist unique places that aren’t on the well trodden tourist path. Participate in a movement that protects the country’s nature, regional heritage, and cultural traditions.


Stay in our of our handpicked locations. Whether that’s a boutique hotel immersed within the buzz of city creatives, or a historic palazzo or family residence – you will find inspiration in your surroundings. Enrich your experience as you immerse yourself in the territory and its history.


‘Learn something new that could turn into a passion’ Laura Notarbartolo – Co-founder of Creative Italy

Learn and preserve Italian craftmanship. See firsthand the ancient techniques handed down over centuries. Developing creative skills, learning a handicraft, and discovering traditions can be a fantastic way to travel, plus it’s great for your own personal wellbeing. In our fast-paced modern lives, it is incredibly important we participate in selfcare – one way in which we can do this is to spend time using our hands being creative. After all, being creative is good for our physical and mental wellbeing!
