Who we are



Blomming has been co-founded by Nicola Junior Vitto and Alberto D'Ottavi. A number of people helped its development, and still preciously does.



The founders team

Nicola Junior VittoNicola Jr. Vitto was working for an italian fashion e-commerce top site when dreamed of a startup for Social E-commerce. So began coding Blomming and chatting around. In the meanwhile, he also obtained a license as a Sommelier. His blog, his Twitter.

Alberto D'Ottavi In his twenties Alberto D'Ottavi left his city to follow his love for computing and write about it. 20 years after he's still sick, but goes back to the seaside as often as he can. He's a bit of a presence on the web. But mostly blogs, or tweets.
