  • Anna has interviewed top culinary figures, from up-and-coming Florentine chefs to famous food personalities, including Alton Brown.
  • In 2019, Anna moved to Palermo, Sicily, and dove into the island's cuisine. She's mastered the art of making — and eating — street food, from riceballs to panelle, and knows that the best way to engage with local culture is through its cuisine.
  • As a freelance writer, Anna has been featured in Atlas Obscura, Commercial Observer, America Domani, Hipcamp, New York Observer, Matador Network, The Italy Edit, Italy Segreta, Live in Italy, Tuscan Trends, Magenta Florence, and La Repubblica, among others.


As a reporter, Anna Staropoli has written all about travel, food, and wine, as well as commercial real estate, ESG, and climate change. These topics may seem all-encompassing, but they intersect more often than not; she's sat down with Miami's mayor in Buenos Aires, Argentina to discuss South Florida's flood resilience and shadowed puppeteers in Palermo, Sicily to explore the adaptability of their art.


Anna graduated from Dartmouth College in 2019 with a degree in English, creative writing, and geography. She's been writing about her favorite places ever since.
