My Umbria was born in 2015, stemming from an idea of Gabriele Salari, journalist and writer, “original from Umbria and passionate about it too”, so that he is deeply familiar with the region. Gabriele is a nature and environment enthusiast, he contributes to several magazines, including Plein Air, Famiglia Cristiana and the national newspaper La Stampa, on which he writes a blog called “La nostra Italia” (“Our own Italy”). Gabriele is the author of several books about nature and the environment, some of which for children. He dedicated two books of him to Umbria region:
Diario Umbro. Un anno sul Monte Subasio tra lecci, santi e poeti (“Umbria’s diary. A year on Mount Subasio between holms, saints and poets”) and La mia Umbria (“My Umbria”), soon to be published.
