"Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do."

About Us

As a young and dynamic Italian DMC, we incorporate Quality, Authenticity and Creativity into each and every one of our bespoke events, destination weddings, and private tours. We aim to creatively delight you and your guests through the richness of Italy’s landscapes, history, art, gastronomy, and winemaking.

MEET OUR FOUNDER

After many years in the tourism and event industries, Laura Notarbartolo left the world of multinationals to realize her dream of proposing Italy as an event, wedding, and holiday destination – with an authentic, seasonal perspective. Since establishing Italian Special Occasions DMC, Laura fully appreciates the opportunity to offer her clients a tailor-made, personalized, and flexible approach – and to introduce them to enchanting areas of Italy that lie off the beaten path of mass tourism.

Laura’s extensive international experience of working with diverse cultures in multiple languages has given her a unique, 360-degree view of the tourism and events industries. She and her team regularly scour Italy’s beautiful cities, coasts, and countryside – in search of hidden gems, extraordinary venues, and unique local activities. Laura is passionate about creating high-quality, memorable occasions that both awaken the senses and showcase the local history, culture, and gastronomy.
