Ciao from Rome! Summer is ending, “L'estate sta finendo”, as a famous Italian song from the summer of 1895 used to say: do any of you remember it? I guess not. We the Italians didn't stop all summer long: with the exception of the We the ItaliaNews videos, even in the hottest months we told you what happened in Italy and the things that happened in...

Ciao from Rome! Usually in this editorial we deal with news about We the Italians, but this time at least at the beginning of the editorial we make an exception. Also because for the first time in 142 issues, we dedicate to the same topic, in this case sport, two covers in a row. The July cover had rightly celebrated the Italian national soccer tea...

Ciao from Rome, welcome to another wonderful issue of our magazine.

Things are getting better in Italy, as we tell you twice a week in our video and audio podcast We the ItaliaNews, which we encourage you to watch or listen to all the time.

It's an experiment, luckily it won't...

Dear friends, today I start this editorial with a good news about me and I want to share it with you: I received the first dose of anticovid vaccine, and next April 2 I will have the second one. I believe that for me it was fate that a wonderful Italian nurse, Celeste Radatti, inoculated me with an American vaccine. Two flags, One vaccine! On this...

Dear friends, there are so many things we're working on. Virtual meetings, some even in-person; projects; partnerships. I hope that very soon it will be possible to tell you about the things we are preparing, obviously only when they will be done deals. One of the most interesting things we're studying is tourism, which before Covid-19 was 14% of t...

Dear friends, happy new year! The horrendous 2020 is behind us, we're past it. 2021 will still be difficult, but the beginning of the end of the nightmare has begun, and we have reasons to be hopeful. It was 2012 and they started then, on a small Italian newspaper called L'Opinione, my interviews that then led to something that you don't even know,...

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays! It's a pleasure and a relief to write the December editorial, the last one, of this horrendous unforgettable year. As our cover explains well, we can kick and chase away this 2020, and welcome a 2021 that will still be very difficult, but at least born under the good auspices of the vaccine. We are happy to end this...

Not all Italians have understood or accepted that it is not a 100 meters race, but a marathon, indeed a marathon hurdles: a discipline that does not exist in athletics be...
