I am Massimo, or Max, as some prefer to call me. I am from Milan, Italy, but have been curious about languages and the world for as long as I can remember. It all started when I was a child. I’ve always had an unbridled passion for languages. I remember spending hours on my CB radio talking to the United States, the United Kingdom and a lot of other countries around the world. I eagerly listened to the various accents of our peninsula and tried to grasp the differences. To put it simply, I was a language nerd. As a young adult I started travelling around the world to fully immerse myself in different cultures and in the English language. I spent extensive time in the UK and the USA and it deepened my love for the English language even further.
Back in Italy, after numerous study and work stays abroad, I saw that there was a demand for English language skills and for unique voices and decided to combine my passion for languages, acting and speaking with offering a service to businesses and individuals. I started to pursue a career as a language trainer and voice-over artist. I was awarded the Cambridge CELTA Tesl Certificate to teach English as a second language. I took acting and speech classes to develop a strong voice, both in Italian and in English.
Today, I am a qualified, results-driven, bilingual (American English – Italian) English language trainer and voice-over artist. I organize individual and group courses in general and business English and public
speaking, in Italian and English, according to my clients’ needs.
As an artist and actor, using my voice and language as my only tool, I have learned how important it is to not only choose my words carefully, but to constantly develop and fine-tune my voice. How you say something is just as important as what you say. When working with companies and organizations, communicating their messages and representing their brands in films, video, advertising and other media, my voice becomes a part of their stories and must evoke emotions, offer comfort or entertainment, inspire action, or deepen the knowledge among their customers and clients. When my work can help an organization to maximize their voice and to reach their clients in this way, it’s a great day in the office for me too!
Maybe you have already heard my voice on web radio (check out English Max and The Power of Words on voci.fm), in TV/online commercials or in corporate videos!
Even when I am not not teaching or in a recording studio, my vocal cords are always hard at work. I am an outgoing person who is always talking to friends and clients, instructing bikers and hikers on guided tours, chatting up strangers in the street, whistling at dogs or confessing my love to my cats.
Hopefully, I will also be speaking to you soon!

Tutto ha inizio da bambino. Ho sempre avuto una passione sfrenata per le lingue. Ricordo che passavo ore e ore alla mia radio CB con l’antenna sul tetto per parlare con gli Stati Uniti, il Regno Unito e un sacco di altri paesi nel mondo. Ascoltavo con interesse i vari accenti della nostra Penisola e cercavo di carpirne le differenze. Insomma, ero un nerd delle lingue, tanto che dopo vari soggiorni di studio e lavoro all’estero decisi di intraprendere la carriera di formatore linguistico e voice-over artist.
Ho conseguito il Cambridge CELTA Tesl per l’insegnamento internazionale dell’inglese come lingua seconda; ho studiato recitazione, dizione e doppiaggio per poter offrire una voce di qualità sia in italiano che in inglese.
Ed eccoci qui: Max formatore linguistico e voice-over artist.
Una voce, tante voci, più lingue.
