I was born in Milan, Italy in 1969. In 1990, I started my career as a journalist working for several newspapers and magazines, mainly in the tourism, automotive, motorcycling and nautical sectors. Highlights include key roles at important Italian magazines, such as being the Editor-in-Chief of Aqva magazine (2003) and Deputy Editor of the nautical title Barche (1999 – 2003). In particular, from 1996 to 2009, I led the Italian magazine “Caravan e Camper”, first as Deputy Director, then Director and also as Publisher. From this experience I have acquired a deep knowledge of the recreational vehicle market, and become an expert on products, testing motorhomes and writing numerous technical articles. I am a passionate photographer and videographer. I have also written books about travelling with an RV, published by the two main Italian publishing companies: Mondadori and De Agostini.
I have written many travel articles of my extraordinary journeys with motorhomes, for example: Cuba (3200 km), South Africa (3400 km) and Australia (9000 km). I have also travelled extensively with a motorcycle and tent, such as: USA coast to coast (12000 km); through deserts in Morocco, Tunisia and Lybia; to the most northerly point of Europe at Norway’s Nord Kapp, and most of the rest of western Europe.
In 2014, I was honoured to become one of the members of the Committee of Wise Men in the “Golden Book” published by the Italian RV owners federation (ACTItalia Federazione).
My experience as communication consultant In 2009, after the economic crisis struck the RV sector and related magazines in Italy, I sold MCM Editori (Caravan e Camper’s publishing company) and took the opportunity to create a new service: Mazzucchelli and Partners – International Press and Communication Service. The increasing in online publications and the digital media evolution enabled my new communications service to quickly be successful, working with many leading brands in the RV sector. As well as offering an international press office service, I also support clients across a wide range of marketing activities, providing a complete range of integrated services such as multimedia (video, animation, photography), visual graphics, b2b and b2c newsletter creation & management, website design & content optimization, brochure design, production of corporate materials, advertising campaign and social media management.
Recent publishing experiences
My experience of communications and my passion for caravanning helped me to create some new editorial products.
In 2009 I launched the online news-agency ‘Aboutcamp News‘. It is a website publishing the most important press releases from the caravanning sector for journalists and communications professionals. Which is a useful tool for my clients, too. http://www.aboutcampnews.eu
In 2012 I created ‘Aboutcamp BtoB‘, a professional magazine that reports on products, news and business strategies from the accessories and OEM sector and is sent directly to buyers, developers and decision makers from over 500 motorhome and caravan manufacturers worldwide. A printed magazine version is also mailed by post. http://www.aboutcampbtob.eu
In 2013 I launched ‘Golden Camping‘, an online magazine dedicated to high quality tourism with motorhomes, caravans and in mobile homes presenting a selection of European campsites reviewed by a group of specialized journalists. The editorial format enhances the information concerning the campings with articles and insights featuring their events and activities, but moreover enriched with special articles dedicated to the surroundings, natural beauties, architectural highlights, sport activities and cultural sites. http://www.goldencamping.com
