A Year of “What Italy Is”

An ongoing Instagram experiment dubbed “What Italy Is” highlights the best parts of the country through endearing imagery and thoughtful captions. Conceived by photographers Simone Bramante and Giuseppe Mondi, the project—now a year old—features photos from the stream of pictures tagged #whatitalyis. Already with a 24,000-person following and 55,000 posts to its hashtag, it’s apparent how much Italy is loved both by nationals and those abroad.
