Joined the Girolibero ranks in 2009. When not clutching her mouse, she dedicates herself to her sport, pets (a dog, two cats and a tortoise) and enjoys a full-bellied song – always accompanied by a chalice of Amarone! In defiance of her degree in Political Sciences, in 2008 Anita specialised in growing roses, both ancient and modern. She has pledged her eternal love to the Venetian Lagoon and the sea, but regrets to face up to the fact that her freckles are the closest she manages to a decent suntan.

A chaotic (orderly, she claims) jumble reigns supreme on Elena's desk, ranging from Girolibero and Zeppelin brochures to newspapers, magazines and scraps of paper. Joined the team in 2009 with a History of Arts degree and manages our communications and press affairs. Loved her beaches as much as the scout camps as a child, which accounts for an equal fondness of flip-flops and trekking boots. Elena's first love? – Guitar. Her latest? – Tanzania, where she spent her honeymoon.

Born in 1991 in Vicenza – a town jokingly known as “full of cat eaters” – Gessica would fight tooth and claw for any mog out there. She’s passionate about visual design and, having graduated in Graphic Design & Art Direction at the NABA-Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, she then worked on inforgraphics as a graphic designer at No.Parking Studio in Vicenza. Along the way, whilst working on the music scene, Gessica also discovered a love of photography, which she nurtured as a photographer for EY Studio. Add her passion for cycling to her ability behind the camera and lens, and little surprise that she should end up at Girolibero.

A graduate in Communications, you’ll always find Nicole (no points for guessing) online, tweeting, posting and generally flying the flag for adventure travel across the web. When she’s offline, Nicole will jump on the nearest plane in search of a new destination to post up on Foursquare or Instragram. Music and radio are both close to her heart, and in her spare time she works as a presenter, interviewer and writer. A single astrological sign was never going to be enough for this busy bee, who is an Aries with the cusp on Pisces and Scorpio ascendant. (Don’t ask: Nicole isn’t sure either…).
