A freelance journalist in Italy since 1991, California native Nicole Martinelli has been in the Bel Paese long enough to jump lines but still clock-watches when cooking pasta.
Based in Milan, she frequently reports further a field -- from the development of a dolphin-saving whistle in Sicily to the 'Rave Priest' in Abruzzo for outfits including Newsweek and the BBC.
She is the creator and editor of news website http://www.zoomata.com, where quirky stories give the bigger picture of Italy today, from a grape-stomping workshop to the first association of house husbands.
Zoomata stories have been cited by numerous sources including UPI, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ananova.com, and in books, "Heritage Italian-American Style" and "Living La Dolce Vita: Bring the Passion, Laughter and Serenity of Italy into Your Daily Life."
