Erica Vagliengo (1977)
web journalist, blogger e writer from Torino, Italy.
Columnist @marieclaire.it (where she writes “Celebrity dixit”), @scenariomagazine.it, @punktmagazine.com
She wrote for notenews.it, excelsiormilano.com, donnareporter.com, Oggi7.com.
She adores leaving her mark on the internet, Zurich cake, collecting handbags (especially those from flea markets), contemporary art, NewYork, and caffè macchiato (only of the Italian kind). As a kid she used to feel like a mix between Mary Poppins and Virginia Woolf. Now that she’s grown up, she has penned the novel ‘I Want to Write for Vanity Fair’ (ed. Memori) using the pen name of Emma Travet.
In 2008, she has launched the EmmaT Project via web: it is an innovative example of self marketing which is related to the novel and which has as its protagonist her alter ego, supported by a host of exhibits, diverse events and interviews on national radio and tv. Not forgetting the original graphic design project and merchandise inspired by her adventures: an entire collection of pins, handbag mirrors, lipgloss, and keychains all sold directly online. Her EmmaT stickers have been photographed by her fans from all four corners of the globe, and these pictures form part of the album, Emmat Around the World, on Facebook.
The adventures of Madamin Travet and of her creator has continued on the blog emmatvanity.style.it, a highly popular phenomenon from 2007 to 2012.
In 2013 Erica decide to hide for a while her heroine, for herself. That’s why she opened a new blog www.ericavagliengo.com where you could find her articles&post, her novel&tales and her new pictures.
She self publish “I Want to Write for Vanity Fair” in the american-english version on september, 7, Emma Travet’s happy b day.
At present she is studying for becoming a geek girl and it seems working to her second novel that will give her fame and wealth just to buy a Pekaboo color ginger, a mini iPad, a 500 Fiat color avio and so many other things (yes, she has always had a strong sense of the humor.)
Talk so much, sleeps little, writes a lot.

I Want to Write for Vanity Fair
by Emma Travet
The story of just one of the many ordinary young damsels out there whom, in between one adventure and the next, chases her dreams armed with plenty of determination and incurable optimism. Her style is fresh and dynamic, almost diary-like, and features snapshots and situations drawn from her everyday and which are described through the eyes of someone who defines herself as precarious, with style
