The discovery of the Sicily was great, I really enjoyed the food and the landscapes of the island during this project. Thanks to Massi and Gabri for their attitude, relax and cool. See you!"
Benjamin from France (Discover Sicily I)

"If you would like to gain an exceptionally positive experience I highly recommend that you travel with this "Let Me Italian You" group. Events are superbly organised. Both Gabriele and Massimiliano are 100% genuine and honest. You can spend four days with a world class professional photographer in Yan Pekar. He gave me every help in the world. The event in Sically between the 30th Aug - 3rd Sept 2017 was one of my most enjoyable experiences ever. Also, events are competitively priced and you will be looked after in every respect. I can find no fault with "Let Me Italian You" I highly recommend these once in a lifetime opportunities. Once in a Lifetime - Yesterday I witnessed a live volcano that i would not have otherwise seen. Thank you both so much."

Ileana from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"No matter how beautiful an experience is, there is always an end. "#DiscoverSicily" with #LetMeItalianYou has been one of this kind of experiences, when time flies too fast and you wish you could repeat it all over again. It's not just an opportunity to learn new skills in photography from experienced photographers and discover new places. It's also about making new friends, sharing moments, feelings, open up yourself to new people and new adventures, get out of your comfort zone to challenge your abilities. I had the chance to meet a wonderful group of amazing, interesting people that I won't forget and I will hopefully meet again. Special thanks to Yan Pekar for sharing his knowledge with all of us and to Massimiliano and Gabriele for giving me the chance to take part to this unforgettable adventure and taking care of every detail with such a unique kindness. I especially won't ever forget what we shared while hiking the Etna volcano, it has been "simply" awesome! Thank you so much for making it so special!"

Basia from Poland (Discover Sicily I)
"I participated in first edition of Discover Sicily and workshops of Let Me Italian You are an amazing experience, where most of all you can meet great people with the same passion for photography. Although I am a fresh photographer, my friend encouraged me to participate, based on her experience from workshop in Barcelona. Sicily was challenging to photograph, not to mention 10 km hike to Etna ;) I especially liked city of Syracuse and photo shoot with a beautiful model. Thanks to workshops I met amazing people from different countries, each one of them with an interesting life story, adventurous plans for future, travel addicts and passionates of photography. Because of them I learnt a lot about different points of view, ideas, tips and technical details, which I apprieciate. Very big thanks to Massi and Gabri for doing what they do, because LMIY is a MUST DO at least once in Your life!"

The trip has actually been like a daydream, we had the possibility to see lovely landscapes and feel the magic of the Sicilian atmosphere. For me, this experience has been absolutely amazing, I met a lot of lovely people, and I could feel like at home during the whole project, even founding new friends to share memories and project creating other ones! I actually felt like in a big family and the twins have been amazing, always caring about us and sharing with us a lot of laughs.

I had a wonderful time, met excellent people and learned a lot about photography and Sicilian lifestyle, for which I thank the photographer Yan Pekar, for his lessons and feedback, and the twins, Massimiliano and Gabriele, for making it all happen. The journey thru historical cities, beautiful beaches and the Etna volcano was stunning, remarkable and every step took was to remember. I will definitely return and 'Discover Sicily' more and I highly recommend this project to those with passion for photography and traveling. I would love to see you all again in the future and wander new places along with the team 'Let me Italian you'."
Alexandra from Romania (Discover Sicily II)
"Discover Sicily 3 was an amazing and unforgettable experience that mixed two of my big passions: travel and photography. I would like to say a big 'Thank you!' to Massimiliano and Gabriele for the great organization. They managed to gather people from different countries, diverse backgrounds and styles who share a common passion for photography. We visited beautiful places, had joint photography sessions and enjoyed the taste of Sicily. I learned a lot about photography, it was my first time shooting models and really enjoyed the entire experience. Besides the learning process, I met some fantastic and friendly people, who I hope to see in the near future. It trully was a memorable experience and I would love to participate to a new project with Let me Italian you!"
Lavinia from Romania (Discover Sicily III)
"Io questo progetto lo adoro. Sarà che viaggiare è da sempre la mia prima grande passione (mi sono pure sparata una laurea in cinese pur di muovermi dal paesello...Bei tempi! ), sarà che a 10 anni mio padre mi mise in mano una macchina fotografica e una cinepresa Super 8 (partii per il mio primo viaggio all'estero e le foto di allora sono stampate nella mia memoria...Indelebili); sarà che finalmente ho deciso di dedicare un po' di tempo a me stessa (ad una certa età si comincia a capire qualcosa della vita),ma Let me Italian you ha trasformato il mio indice destro in un clickatore seriale compulsivo. Madonna quanto mi piace! Se poi ci si mette un'ottima proposta culturale e fotografica e la possibilità di conoscere e confrontarsi con altre persone appassionate come te, beh torno davvero indietro nel tempo, zaino in spalla e via!!
Al prossimo Discover!"
Stefania from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"Che dire ?....semplicemente un’esperienza fantastica!!! Cinque giorni intensi trascorsi nella bellissima Sicilia, con un gruppo di amici un po’ da tutto il mondo, scattando foto ma soprattutto divertendosi!!! Tutto questo grazie a Massimiliano e Gabriele, che con la loro pazienza e gentilezza sono riusciti a rendere speciale questa vacanza, permettendoci di visitare questa meravigliosa terra! E’ ammirevole il progetto che stanno portando avanti e soprattutto il loro impegno e passione! Il valore aggiunto sono state le persone che ho avuto modo di conoscere, ognuna mi ha regalato qualcosa…e spero davvero di ritrovarvi tutti presto!!! Insomma torni da un discover e vuoi subito ripartire! Ringrazio di cuore Massimiliano e Gabriele anche per la pazienza dimostrata per l’organizzazione “pre-partenza” ….a presto!!!"
Eleonora from Italy(Discover Sicily III)
"It was a great experience, I met new people from different nationalities, each of whom was an artist. The group's harmony was like a family, and we were able to see areas in Sicily that were really beautiful and great for photography, and I'm very happy to meet with this group and I will surely accompany them on the next trip. Thanks Gabriele and Massimilano for the wonderful 5 days."
Parisa from Iran (Discover Sicily III)
"A beautiful experience recently passed in Sicily, Grabriele and Massimiliano, the organizers, always proved to be available, Yan Pekar, the professional photographer who followed us, has certainly not been left in giving us useful explanations and suggestions. And finally, the company, which, of different origins, fused into a dilute siphon. An experience that personally has surely enriched me. Thanks again to Gabriele Massimiliano and Yan for their work and everyone for the good moments spent together."
Stefano from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"Guys, we were watching the FB page of the project but I don't have an account so I can't publish publicly (it's the first time that I am sad to not be in Facebook, just think about it). It was amazing, I had so much fun, I met you and amazing people. I exactly expected something like that, and it was even better! I'll join you again, very soon! Thanks!"
Silvia from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"Ciao Gabriele e Massimiliano, ecco le foto di discover Sicily. Non è stato facile anche questa volta, ogni foto un ricordo, ogni ricordo una "lacrimuccia". Un gruppo meraviglioso in una terra stupenda come la Sicilia, vorrei fosse possibile iniziare nuovamente domani. Come al solito la vostra organizzazione ha funzionato alla perfezione nonostante la difficoltà di gestire un gruppo eterogeneo di persone con diverse personalità e caratteri. Grazie mille ancora di tutto. Alla prossima, che spero sia il prima possibile. Un grossissimo abbraccio."
Marco from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"The participation in “Discover Sicily 2” was a unique and unforgettable experience for me. The organizers managed to gather together people with different styles, sharing a common passion for photography.
Visiting beautiful places, joint photography sessions and enjoying the taste of Sicilian life with these great people was a memorable experience.
Cooperation and mutual support were prerequisites for enhancing our photography skills."
Magda from Poland (Discover Sicily II)
"In 5 days I have met such as an amazing group of people which I would never though to have so much fun! I took many pictures and visited wonderful places, last but not least I ate so many tasty meals, like ARANCINI (they are the best ever). I shared with these powerful people my and their biggest passion: photography!
It was beautiful to partecipate at Discover Sicily. Gabriele and Massimiliano, guys, you are awesome!"
Silvia from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"Sono appena tornata dal Discover Sicily III, semplicemente bellissimo! Ho scelto di fare questa esperienza perché adoro la fotografia, e avevo una voglia matta di tornare in Sicilia, bhè, questa era l’occasione perfetta per unire le due cose! Oggi sono a casa e ripensando a quello che è stato…devo dire che i cinque giorni trascorsi, sono stati ben più di questo…non sono stati solo Sicilia e fotografia, ma sono stati persone, nuove amicizie, una compagnia piacevolissima, tante risate…sono stati mare, lunghe passeggiate e panorami mozzafiato…sono stati condivisione di momenti ed esperienze fantastiche che ho messo tutte in valigia e portato via con me. Certe emozioni è difficile descriverle, perché c’è un solo modo per condividerle, viverle! Direi che un grazie particolare va a Gabri e Massi, i nostri “twins”, che con la loro semplicità e disponibilità rendono possibile tutto questo; a Yan Pekar, che ci ha seguiti e dato ottimi consigli per tutto il viaggi e a tutti voi, compagni di avventura, che avete completato questo bellissimo puzzle! Spero che capiti presto una nuova occasione di viaggio."
Stefania from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"That was a really amazing experience: the two guys Gabriele and Massimiliano are so friendly and kind with all partecipans; the organization was almost perfect and Yan Pekar was a precius teacher who gave us good advices to take pictures as best as possible in the different wonferful locations. Finally is very nice to know a lot of new friends from all around the world!!! So in a word I say SUPER: I wanna go with them again for another interesting "photographic trip" as soon as possible!!!"
Elisa from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"One of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Thanks to each of the participants for the days full of smiles, the desire to know and to help each other. Really thanks to Gabri and Massi for the wonderful opportunity they give each time with these trips. You can learn a lot of photography and humanity. "
Cristina from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"Fun, fun, fun! The coolest way to visit a new place, while learning a lot of useful tricks about photography! I had the chance to get personalised advice, improve my skills and have a good time at the same time.
I will definately do it again!"
Yiota from Greece (Discover Sicily V)
"It was my first adventure and certainly the first of a long series (I hope). I have learned so much from master Yan, values that cannot be taught like friendship, the solidarity that the whole group has shown me, I have understood that despite my physical limitations, I can achieve unthinkable things for my legs. I met wonderful people, I was sad when it all ended. However, I am happy to have participated, I will always thank Massimiliano and Gabriele for giving me the opportunity to grow again. I love you, thanks to everyone. I hope that i made good shooting. "
Giuseppe from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"I joined some pretty well organised daytrips, seminars and group dinners during Discover Sicily V. The brothers were always available and caring, giving a friendly note to the group."
Antigoni from Greece (Discover Sicily V)
"It was my first time participating in something like this and I am glad that I took in this opportunity. It was a great way to visit and learn about Sicily. Very well organized and the twins will help you and answer you every question that you have. Plus these projects are a great way to meeting different people from around the world and getting to know new places. Everyone should Discover at least one city with these guys! See you next time in a new city. "
Athina from Greece (Discover Sicily V)
"Good organization, great way to visit new places and at the same time acquire new skills and photography techniques."
Giuseppe from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"After Discover Sicily Project, I went back home and started to think about all good things that had happened during the project! I couldn't believe that was over! I visited so many beautiful places, met so many wonderful people, learned a lot! I got a lot of memories and inspiration! Twins, you have incredible power to share with other good emotions! Keep doing it! Guys, thank you for being family this time! Hugs!"
Zlata from Belarus (Discover Sicily IV)
"Only stars? Not enough, guys" UNIQUE experience, perfect organization, special people. I left with much lower expectations than the thousand emotions I felt thanks to Let me Italian you. Today I feel much "richer" of experience and people! As I told yesterday: if at every Discover, I'll wait the return flight with the same emotions, feelings and nostalgia, I won't stop to travel with you! From now I'll take with me a piece of you!"
Agnese from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Massi and Gabri, you're absolutely FANTASTIC! Organizing something like this is really a great challenge. Thanks for this experience I could improve myself, I've discovered new places and made important friendships. Thanks for the oppurtunity that you gave to us! Absolutely five stars! I hope to join you again!"
Mariagrazia from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Thank you again for the amazing experience!!!For me was an opportunity to learn new way of things..I'm sure that I will join another project soon. I met friendly,interesting and positive people with who I will stay in contact.I need to say also that organization was really perfect because I always received great support from "Twins"! I have inside a lot of emotions that I want to share with everyone! This project give me the opportunity to improve my skills, thanks to Yan Pekar!!!"
Sylvia from Poland (Discover Sicily IV)
"I like an italian word "la porta" (door) It's like a "portal": the media, which transfers somebody to other place. The picture of the hotel's door will remember me and transfer (in Italian "portare") to the wonderful 4 days in Sicily with amazing team of the amateur photograpers in the project DISCOVER SICILY, organized by Letmeitalianyou. Our project is over only yesterday and I already miss it! "Ciao" in Italian means "hi" and "bye" at the same time.
So, ciao my new friends! "
Evelina from Russia (Discover Sicily IV)
"One of the most beautiful experience in my life! Perfect organization, new places to visit every day, new friendships, a connection of different countries and languages, laughs, fun, everything thanks to Let me Italian you. You're so powerful together, Twins! I go back home with the heart full of joy, happy to have met amazing and special people like you and with the awareness that it's only a goodbye!"
Serena from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Posso dire senza alcuna titubanza che l'esperienza di Let me italian you è stata per me come una boccata d'aria fresca, un respiro di sollievo e gioia nella mia routine di tutti i giorni. È un'esperienza che mi ha regalato positività, voglia di fare, di scoprire e imparare. In soli quattro giorni, non solo ho avuto la possibilità di vedere e capire meglio il mondo della fotografia, ma ho avuto l'occasione di conoscere delle fantastiche persone e creare dei bellissimi legami in un'atmosfera di condivisione, semplicità e curiosità; un'atmosfera resa possibile dalla voglia di fare e dalla positività che caratterizzano Massimiliano e Gabriele, che in tutti e quattro i giorni non hanno mai mancato di essere gentili, disponibili e di ottima compagnia. Consiglio a tutti questo viaggio, in particolare a chi magari riserva qualche paura a lasciarsi andare in nuove esperienze come la sottoscritta."
Laura from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Recently my first experience with Let me Italian you ended and I am super happy to have taken part to Discover Sicily. It was an unforgettable and educational trip that allow me to meet fantastic people, visiting unique places and learning many things. As I told to Gabri and Massi, what they do reduce the distances and connect people. I can't wait to join you again. Thanks a lot!"
Caterina from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Discover Sicily 4 was the first time I ever photographed strangers and models. As far as I know, taking portraits can easily turn into awkwardness: that’s why I stick to photographing people I have known for a long time. Yan‘s clever practical lectures, however, helped a lot to understand the difference between simply taking pictures of a person and actually collaborating with a model. On the second day, shooting in Syracuse, I think we all experienced a great creative flow, which was only possible because of the positive and conforming atmosphere of our group. It really made all the difference. These few days wasn’t only about travelling and learning (though, those were also great parts) but also about getting small peeks into each other’s world and I really liked what I’ve seen. I’m glad I could be a part of this project and I hope I’ll see you lovely people again! (spoiler: the twins are great at organizing things)"
Alexandra from Hungary (Discover Sicily IV)
"First project with Let me Italian you and I have to say it was an an unforgettable experience! I had the opportunity to admire amazing places, meeting fantastic people that I'll remmeber a beautiful memory, to learn new photography skills. A special thanks to twins for their kindness and professionalism before the departures and during the whole project."
Alessia from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"This is my first time in Italy and I love it. Sicily was took my heart. And this is my second time join with Letmeitalianyou and It was amazing experience, I met so many talented people and I learn about photography form Yan, and I wish I can join to the next project with them."
Aris from Indonesia (Discover Sicily V)
"Great people and great experience! This was my first time in Sicily and I couldn't hope in a better experience. I joined a wonderful group of people, we all learned from each other.. just wonderful!!!"
Rodolfo from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"For sure an experience to repeat for many reasons! A project that leave you many lessons that go further any language barries, as this edition of Discover Sicily V. I improved my level of English, I learnt new techiniques of photography and life lessons that I'll always take with me!"
Rossana from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"If you like traveling, meeting new friends and most of all taking photos while you learn and improve, Let me Italian you is perfect for you. I highly recommend to join to their next adventures!"
Rita from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"Hi guys, I couldn't write before because I'm still in Sicilia looking for new adventures. Anyway, I'm not sure how to start, but this is my second project, and I decided to participate in it because in the first one I cross almost every shield I had. I'm a shy person but I never was in a situation like this, where no one knows you an the only way "to survive" it's being yourself. Letmeitalianyou give me the chance to grow up in someway. So I wasn't afraid this time in Sicilia because I knew I could try to be my best version again. Of course I'm still shy, but again I learn something new: not to judge so fast. Normally I don't or at least I think I don't but this time I was conscious about that And I'm saying this for many reasons but specially because at first I thought that the Italians more or less in this group were a little close to other people, but I don't know how I become one of them and they open their arms to me and we let us to be part to each other. Also I think I had the chance to speak with almost everybody, to know each other everyday a little bit more. That helps to be more confortable in the group and start to connect with others. Then it ends letting a kind of (positive) emptiness inside of you, because all what we felt in this travel we builded together and it was so beautiful! Tweens, I have to thank you again for creating projects like this because it's not just about photography it's about build new memories and families. It's amazing to feel this for a second time. And also thanks to Yan, because all your tipps were very useful, explained in a simple way. Teaching us how to look in to the simple and in to the details, and always open to help and listen. I really learnt a lot from you! In the end, this proyect become to a perfect combination. Thanks all for being part of this and staying in my life for a couple days. My second time in this project and I only can say: that's amazing! If you like travel, photography and you are brave enough to stay with people you don't know, I strongly recommend you that experience because you will learn, have fun and for me one of the most important things, you will build a new family."
Marta (Discover Sicily V)
"Hello dears twins, thank you so much, I loved every moment, and special meet you again. Sorry if I wasn't 100% my low back unfortunately, now i return my dairy rotines. I think when i will join again to another discovery, maybe next year, maybe Marrakech. You know your are in my heart! Keep going!"
Maria Teresa from Portugal (Discover Sicily V)
"I’m here at the airport waiting my flight... just wanted to say thank you to everybody! This was my third experience with the amazing group of Let me Italian you and my first time in Sicily! I’m sad writing this words, most of the others experiences that i had, because in this edition i found again my trip friend Houou , the helpful teacher Yan Pekar and the two models Anastasia and Adrianna that became part of my life... i wish you all to enjoy life and have a really nice future! Hope to see you again! A special GRAZIE to Massi and Gabri that gave me this big opportunity... travel, learn and meet new friends! Love you all...In 9 months: 3 different countries, more than 60 new friends, over 3000 pictures taken. This is Let me Italian you. You are like a drug: once you try you can’t stop using it!"
Fabrizio from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"I can officially say it was one of the best experiences of my life! I spent 4 amazing days in the beautiful Sicily, sharing my passion for photography with a lovely group from all over the world!" Ileana said.
What our participants said about their experiences in Discover Sicily
"I've participated for the first time in Discover Sicily 6 and it was a great experience! I had the opportunity to admire amazing places, to learn new photography skills, in particular for portrait photography, from our fantastic "teacher" and to meet beautiful people from all over Italy (and not only). I'll always bring this experience with me thanks to Massi and Gabri and all the people there, who made the experience an amazing memory. Waiting for the next project, see you soon!"
Sara from Italy (Discover Sicily VI)
This last week, I had the most incredible professional experience so far since I am a Photographer and I lived it thanks to Let me Italian you in Sicily... There are no words other than GRATEFULNESS and LOVE to describe what we shared and the amazing moments we have lived with the whole group! I'm totally mesmerized by the whole week spent in their company and I came home with loads of nostalgy but amazing energy and great memories! Thank you <3 In the last month I had a lot of doubts looking forward with Photography as my profession, but this experience refocused, redirected my attention onto something essential: I empower people, I care for them, I treat them as equal, I do everything kindly and mindfully... and that comes naturally. Was I blind to not completely see it? It is only on the top of the Etna that this really stroke me and I can't wait to do something relevant with this piece of info... combining my activities probably! A huge and eternal thank you to you Massi & Gabri, you rock my world! A massive group hug for my favourite Italians and Internationals who were part of this emotional group. Love you all guys!
Delphine Gildoin - Photographer Teacher (Discover Sicily VI)
"I would really like to thank you guys for an invitation to Sicily. It was my first time there and I really like places, especially Taormina I guess but I can’t imagine sightseeing it in the full season without COVID, cause it must be super busy. I really enjoyed the whole experience. Apart from the temperature it was really cool, thank you again for an invite. Thank you for making my birthday so nice and funny, I think I couldn’t have imagined better way to spend it. Hope to see you soon in Kraków or somewhere else in the world."
Patrycja from Poland (Discover Sicily VI)
"In this Discover in Sicily I met many beautiful people and I immediately got in tune with the whole group, who came from all over the world! Sicily was an ultra-sensory experience. In the end I don't know if I took more photos or ate more arancini and cannoli !! Wonderful places, delicious food, colours on every corner, breath-taking views. The days passed so quickly and it was all very intense, living this experience with exceptional and professional people such as the photographer @delphingigoin always available and considerate of all of us and the very nice twins Gabri and Massi. Thanks for everything guys! See you at the next Discover!"
Francesco from Italy (Discover Sicily VI)
"Thank you all for this wonderful experience. Everyone in their own way has had an impact on me, especially Giuseppe: you reminded me that even though we feel we can’t do something, we can, nothing is impossible. Delphine, you’re an incredible person, you were very right last night, thank you for your wise words and our fun chats. Also Gabri & Massi thank you, may we meet again in COLD weather. Thank you both for helping me when I needed it for always being there and I still can’t tell you apart"
Stacey from North Ireland (Discover Sicily VI)
"Another wonderful experience has come to the end. The beautiful thing of these trips is that you leave without knowing who are going to me your travel mates, from where they are from, how old they are, etc; and then you end the trip crying, in only one big hug with the hope to see them as soon as possible. Thanks to each of you for all the emotions that you let me feel, for the laughs, for the tears, for everything we shared in these last days. You are the rainbow after the storm!I really don't know where to start.
I'd like to thank you all, one by one, for all the emotions that you made me feel. I can say that this was the most beautiful Discover I've experienced.Your eyes and your smiles will remain in my heart forever.Os quiero mucho. Thanks Let me Italian you, without you all this wouldn't have been possible!
Roberta from Italy (Discover Sicily VI)
"I'm really thanks for all of you. I met twins on Instagram when I were end of my longest adventure, then I participated Discover Krakow, I've been hard time from the end of last year to last several months but I can overcome with you again. Also thanks Delphine to support me, to my superhero (my great inspiration) Giuseppe, my sisters again Roberta and Martina, and all of you. Love and bacio"
Yuu from Korea (Discover Sicily VI)
"It was my first edition and first experience of that kind. I was not expecting anything else than a great place where I could take beautiful photos and improve my skills, but I found a lot more than only this. Friendship and support that I won't be grateful enough for. It was more than just a trip and more than just an experience. There have been only four days but I think I'll miss them forever. Thank you, twins for this opportunity!!!"
Vlada from Moldova (Discover Sicily VI)
"I went to Sicily again! Accepting the invitation of a lovely twin couple and for the third time I have been her model for their photography workshop. I love such experiences because I can meet interesting, world-traveling people from whom I could learn a lot, and I think it's always a special experience instead of traveling "alone". I am grateful for the opportunity and the people I have met!"
Agnes from Hungary - Model
"My friends, thanks a million for your time and such an amazing atmosphere that you all created together. And you are right - thanks a lot to Gabriele and Massi for creating such a positive experience and bringing us together to make new friends, improve our skills, see new places and make us a bit happier:) the atmosphere you created was something I have been missing for a long time! Thank you so much! Grazie mille for such amazing and soul-touching words! The last 3 years were not easy for all of us. But it was much easier to survive this hard time and think more positively about the future when I knew that I have such amazing friends like you. I have been missing you and the project, and seeing you again and being a part of the project and having the opportunity to meet new friends and share my passion was incredible!!! You are a part of my life and I am looking forward to meeting you (and my new friends:) soon!"

George from Austria (Discover Sicily VII)
"Discover Sicily 2022 was my first project and one of my favorite experiences in my life! I meet so many different people and learned so much about different cultures. I am a beginner photographer and I was not sure if it was something that I could see myself doing in the future but this project really opend my eyes because I learned so much about photography. This was all possible thanks to Massi und Gabri for organising everything and of course Yan Pekar for teaching us so much about Photography. Hope to see you all again!"
Misel from Croatia (Discover Sicily VII)
"I definitely become a bit more Italian with Let Me Italian you. Massi&Gabri created the special atmosphere where we felt like one big italian family. I would definitely recommend this program to everyone, curious to learn new photography skills and live new culture. The team was great and it was a pure pleasure to get to know you all. Once again thank Massi and Gabri for bringing all those amazing people together, showing us the best of Sicily, taking care of all the sudden troubles that occured and being the kindest people on the island. Thank you guys for all your efforts, care, kind word and beautiful places you have brought. For me you are the second symbol of Catania and you deserve a statue next to the statue of the elephant in the main square. Great thanks to Yan Pekar for sharing your passion, technics and enthusiasm with us, you've lighten the spark in all if us and there's a small Etna that is preparing to erupt - hopefully in fountain of beautiful pictures. Thank you all for the moments we've shared, for the laugh, joy, walks and talks we had. Looking forward to seeing you again!"
Gergana from Romania (Discover Sicily VII)
"My first experience was on the island of Sicily. I'm very glad I found this project, as I learned a lot and improved my photographic skills, all this surrounded by a wonderful group of friends. So I really recommend it, not only for beginners but also for advanced players. You'll get a very good education from a professional teacher, sometimes the instructor'll reveal tips and tricks that he has learned over the years, so you can say that you can save years by doing two projects like this, and you can do it by travelling the world and meeting new people with similar interests. Very good education, very good people organising it and very good people involved! (and the atmosphere is great!)"
Eva from Romania (Discover Sicily VII)
"Just arrived in Hamburg. Thank you so much for these amazing days in your beautiful town. It was a pleasure spending time with you and thanks for organizing everything for me. We should do more traveling together. You guys have a special place in my heart and I will miss having dinner with the two of you. See you soon (in Santorini)."
Vivien from Germany (Discover Sicily VII)
"I have just returned from Sicily with Letmeitalianyou. This was my second time with this group, and it didn't disappoint. In the short time were were there we were shown hidden parts of the island, had the opportunity to shoot portrait photography in wonderful settings and had the benefit of a professional photographer at hand to share his knowledge. Just as importantly, the group were friendly, inclusive and welcoming. It was a truly wonderful experience."
Marylin from UK (Discover Sicily VII)
"I participated in "Discovery Sicily 7" a beautiful project, in this trip organized by the twins I had the opportunity to visit Sicily for the first time. I shared my experience with so many beautiful people, each one coming from a different place. Together we created a beautiful environment, it seemed to bring together a family and add new components. This is my first time, I had a lot of fun and I liked it with the organizers never abandon you, you can count on them as brothers. What I have experienced in these days pushes me to make other projects and know many other people. Super recommended as an experience: you learn to use your creativity to the maximum. I really enjoyed many photos and many beautiful memories. Thanks twins, Gabri and Massi."
Cristina from Italy (Discover Sicily VII)

I really want to thank Massi and Gabriele for organizing everything in detail: they didn't leave us alone even on the extra days we were there. They are very kind and professional. I recommend everyone to participate in this project and I'll certainly do more with them."
Tatiana from Italy (Discover Sicily VII)
"Le esperienze con Let me italian you sono sempre le migliori: arrivi che non conosci nessuno e te ne vai che sei amico di tutti! Una delle forze del progetto é che incontri persone da tutti i paesi che hanno le tue stesse passioni: viaggiare e fotografare! Dopo aver partecipato a Discover Lisbon e Discover Copenhagen é stata la volta delle Sicilia e chi meglio di Massimiliano e Gabriele poteva portarci a scoprire i gioiellini siciliani? Essendo dei locals, infatti, ci hanno fatto esplorare varie città dell'isola facendocene innamorare! In questa edizione abbiamo avuto per tutto il percorso il fotografo Yan Pekar che mi sento di ringraziare perché ci ha seguito in maniera minuziosa dispendiando consigli fotografici di ogni tipo. Insomma, é stata un'esperienza che mi sentirei di consigliare a chiunque!"
Giulia from Italy (Discover Sicily VII)
"I went in the Discovery Sicily project and I must say it was one of the best days I had with an amazing group of people and I learned so many things photography related and met new beautiful people. I can only recommend them if you’re interested in learning new photography techniques, see beautiful places, meet new people and have a great company. Thank you guys, Massimiliano and Gabriele for organizing this and I really hope to see you again soon. Thank you each and everyone one of you for your good vibes and positivity that made these few days amazing and I’m happy I could meet you and spend this time together learning from the great Yan Pekar who had the patience in explaining all the photography tips to us and sharing his passion with us and enjoying our time in beautiful Sicily. Hope to see you guys again soon somewhere around the world!"

I’m so happy that I finally met u in reality and hopefully it’s just the beginning of our friendship! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your next projects."
Kate from Poland (Discover Sicily VI)
"Non si può spiegare. Come descriveresti qualcosa che ti fa sentire bene e ti fa sentire vulnerabile allo stesso tempo? Questo non è un semplice video di un Viaggio, ma è il riassunto della gioia , dell'armonia, delle risate , della pace interiore, della malinconia, della forza... di un gruppo di persone Speciali e Preziose che hanno reso questa Esperienza Unica nel suo genere."
Ilaria from Italy (Discover Sicily VI)
"Sono due giorni che è terminato Discovery Sicily VI ed è stata un'esperienza unica. Ho avuto la possibilità di scoprire luoghi nuovi, con persone stupende e di imparare nuove conoscenze sulla fotografia e metterle in pratica grazie ad una bravissima e adorabile fotografa. Sicuramente proverò a partecipare ad un'altra Discover!! Infine voglio ringraziare Gabri e Massi, coloro che hanno creato e gestito tutto!"
Arianna from Italy (Discover Sicily VI)
"I want to thank you all for the affection you have given me. It was an incredible experience to climb Etna even higher. At that moment I had no thoughts whatsoever. I watched and admired nature and reflected in silence. I met wonderful people and fell in love with them. Thanks to Delphine, you are a more than wonderful person. Thanks to the twins (I love you). Thank you all with my heart! As you said, we got sick, slowly we are recovering. We must never stop fighting and get up. Etna taught me that my barriers were mental and not physical. If we want to do something, we do it without physical limits. Like last year, I found a fabulous group, a loving teacher. By now we are all one big family and when I am away from my family, I miss home. Thanks Gabry and Massi, thank you all. I tell you I'm not crying or at least I'm trying. You always laugh that life is a unique gift and live once. Love you all."
Giuseppe from Italy (Discover Sicily VI)
"Discover Sicily 2022, my first experience with Let Me Italian You - and what an experience! I didn't know what to expect and I must say it definitely exceeded my expectations, Gabriele and Massimiliano are passionate about what they do which reflects in the outcome of these projects. Thanks to the knowledge of Yan Pekar, that was passed to us in a light and colourful way, I can say I came back with a bag of new information to improve and advance in my journey with photography. In addition to the learning process, the multicultural atmosphere brought me such joy that I will always carry in my heart.
New friends were made and a lot of love was shared, forever grateful for this enriching opportunity and hoping to be part of it again soon.
Thank you everyone for making this experience something I will always carry with me, I am deeply grateful for all the people I met and the memories I made!"
Lucia from Italy (Discover Sicily VII)
"I participated in “Discover Sicily 7” edition in May 2022. It was the best experience ever that I have got in meeting new people, learning about them. Learning about photography in different ways. Visiting the new places and eating good food with amazing people. Wow. I would love to recommend to take part in this. I have made a lot of memories that I will carry forward and will be for sure doing these again. Thanks a lot Let me Italian you (Massi and Gabriele). A huge thanks to Yan Pekar I never used my camera this rigorously! I am very grateful to have met you."
Megana from India (Discover Sicily VII)
"Good morning guys, we just arrived to Munich and are waiting for the train home. I just wanted to say that I'm so glad that I decided to join this project because I had a chance to meet so many beautiful souls! You guys are really great and I hope that we will all stay in contact and visit each other when possible. Also Yan Pekar and twins, thank you so much for giving us this opportunity yet again to learn so much about the thing that we all have in common and for being able to make beautiful new friendships!! I will remember this trip for the rest of my life! It is such a pleasure to do these projects with you guys! I don't think that you both understand how much I need that..I am honestly the happiest and most at peace when I'm there meeting new people and learning about photography! Meeting you guys and participating at the projects was the best thing that ever happened to me!"
