www.italiani.it is the portal for Italians around the world who tell the wonders of the Bel Paese.
1996 - The origins
The domain italiani.it, recorded on a winter's night over 20 years ago, was born with the idea of promoting Italy, Italian products and the Italian spirit in the world, in what was the pioneering idea of e-commerce.
The times were not ripe. There was still mistrust of the internet and what it represented, therefore, we put the project in a drawer but, with the vivid memory of the sleepless nights spent answering dozens of emails from our compatriots abroad. They all had in common the love for Italy, the nostalgia to listen, to read, to understand how life passed in their country of origin.
Social networks didn't exist yet!
2016 - The dream ...
In 2016 we start again with, now clear, the responsibility of managing a domain name italiani.it representing a people, our people. Let's start with a dream: to create the network of Italians in Italy and around the world for to tell e promote our nation, the millenary culture, the unique cuisine, the style, the taste for beauty, the friendliness and the art of being able to assert oneself even away from home. Our Italy is a fascinating country, able to enchant anyone who visits it.
What could be more beautiful than proudly narrating one's origins, the history and beauty of one's land? We from italiani.it we do just that: we enhance and promote our territory, our country, our home. We are talking about values and traditions that make Italy remain in the heart for a lifetime. We do it through the testimonies and the stories of Italians in love with their land, we do it using the largest communication network in the world: the internet.
We want to convey a sense of community and belonging to all those who follow us. We want to be a point of reference for Italianness, Italian culture and local excellences.
Our name is the essence of our idea, of our project: we are the network of Italians in the world.
2018 - The reality

The future… and the goals
