A person who loves everything local, is passionate about discovering the wonders of where we live.

The day I landed in Italy to begin my Masters degree was the day I decided ‘to go local’. The culture, scenery, cuisine and the vibrance of the Italian people was an instant revelation to me, and I decided that all my events must be touched by a local flavor.

My name is Shirley and I am Localista.

With over 15 years experience in creating uniquely customised events, Localista is now an international event planning and design company dedicated to perfection.

“I am constantly in search of new and exciting locations, authentic, local tastes and experiences that go beyond your expectations. I have the expertise and passion to make your special event, simply unforgettable”.

With bases in both Tel Aviv and Milan, we can go local together anywhere in the world - and I will be your Localista.
