Marzia Bisognin, better known by her YouTube username Marzia (formerly CutiePieMarzia), was an Italian YouTube personality for years until she quit the channel. As of October 2018, her remaining videos have earned over 11 million views, attracting over 7.5 million subscribers to her channel.
Bisognin's videos on YouTube focused on fashion, beauty, make-up, DIY, books, movies, vlogs, haul and video gaming. Although Italian, Bisognin speaks English in her videos, in order to have a larger target audience. Bisognin is signed to Maker Studio's sub-network, The Platform.
Marzia is one of the most popular beauty and makeup-oriented channels, despite the channel being discontinued, as it attracts over 16 million viewers each month. Additionally, Bisognin's channel is the most subscribed Italian YouTube channel. Her channel earned over 2.2 million subscribers in 2014, the most for any Italian channel that year. The demographics of Bisognin's viewers have been reported to be females aged 13–24, who use Bisognin's videos as a reference. Additionally, Bisognin refers to her fans as "marzipans."
Aside from creating content on her own channels, Bisognin has been a voice actress in various animated web series. She voiced Carrie the Carrot in Oscar's Hotel for Fantastical Creatures. Bisognin also voiced the character Maya, based on her own dog, in a six-episode animated web series titled Pugatory.
Her channel's success has allowed her to start designing her own clothing. In 2014, she designed "Daisy" shoes through Project Shoe.
In January 2015, Bisognin published a horror book titled La Casa Dei Sogni (Eng: Dream House). Bisognin plans to release a young-adult paranormal novel in 2016, as well.
Bisognin and Felix Kjellberg (better known as PewDiePie), who have been in a relationship since 2011, have both amassed sizable followings. Their individual, as well as their combined popularity, has led to them landing ad deals. In 2014, the two were part of a marketing campaign for the horror film, As Above, So Below. While Kjellberg's videos involved gaming-related topics, Bisognin's videos for the campaign centered around a travel vlog angle of the couple's trip to Paris.
In October 2014, ABC used Bisognin, along with others, to promote their new series Selfie.
