What did you want to be when you were a kid? Most of us still remember a time when “astronaut” and “firefighter” were the most popular options among children of all genders.

Who’s big in Italy right now? Here’s a list of the most popular Italian influencers you should be aware of in 2019.

Currently, one of the most popular fashion bloggers in the world, Mariano Di Vaio, with his blog MdVStyle, has been setting trends not only in matters of fashion but also in matters of hairstyle, photography, home décor and healthy eating.
