Who are the 15 LinkedIn influencers in Italy?

There are 15 top LinkedIn influencers (Linkedin top voices according to the official wording) selected by LinkedIn Italy itself: Mariangela Pira, Filippo Poletti, Rudy Bandiera, Fulvio Giuliani, Marta Basso, Nicola Vanin, Nicoletta Boldrini, Nino Cartabellotta, Roberta Zantedeschi, Marianna Chillau, Luigi Bertilorenzi, Simona Riccio, Melania Aloia, Cristiana Caserta and Paolo Benanti.

Each of them contributes to enliven the debate dedicated to the world of work in the professional portal. And they are the ones who show us the way to promote our brand on the Web: alongside a thematic thread to be cultivated, it is indeed necessary to give life to an editorial plan articulated in posts and articles.

Quality content, combined with a well-structured editorial plan, is the secret to standing out on LinkedIn. And never more so than today, in the face of an employment world characterized by a strong information asymmetry (employers are not aware, with rare exceptions, of candidates’ strengths), it is necessary to mark yourself online through contributions reserved for specific and well-edited topics.

Let’s get to know, in detail, the profiles of LinkedIn’s most followed influencers. The top voices to know. And how they themselves present themselves online through their profiles. We do so by sorting them precisely starting from the number of followers they reach, that is what undisputedly identifies them as the influencers of LinkedIn Italy; we start with Mariangela Pira, followed by Filippo Poletti and then all the other great protagonists of this special.
