Click HERE for more from Stanford on Italian Culture. A sample follows...

1. Search Engines: All American search engines (Yahoo, Google, etc.) are available in Italy-specific versions. These sites are great starting places for searches involving Italian culture, travel, chat rooms, events, job/study opportunities, etc. Although you can find Italian information on American sites, the Italian versions are a great way to eliminate material in English, practice your Italian, initiate more extensive searches, and come across the latest news, trends, events, and ideas in Italy.

-         MSN

-         Google

-         Yahoo

-         Lycos


2. Italian-American Resources: There are many online resources for Italian-Americans or others who are seeking information on events, Italian chatrooms or online forums, or articles about Italian culture.  

-         Italians R Us  A web guide to Italian culture that caters to Italian Americans. Free e-newsletter called “Molto Italiano.”

-         Virtual Italia  An online resource with recipes, travel tips, and book/film suggestions. Also catering to Italian Americans, it offers an event calendar and restaurant guide for San Francisco/New York/Los Angeles and a genealogy search engine.

-         Ital World A site dedicated to Italian speakers living in English-speaking countries. Contains some good links for accessing Italian online newspapers and journals.

-         Italian Genealogy Online and All Things Italian A site that focuses on the heritage of Italian Americans and therefore includes a last name search, basic information on how to obtain birth/death records from Italy, and a ship search feature.


3. Cultural/Historical/Informative sites: For those who are simply curious about Italian history or would like to see Italian culture presented in a more academic way, there are many sites that use the latest technology (webcams or virtual slideshows), pictures, or graphics to inform those who are interested about anything from the Roman empire to Italian wine. 

- Roman History This site offers a multitude of links relating to Ancient Rome. Links for ancient life/culture, historical sites, maps, and historical analysis of the Roman Empire.

- Italian Culture Features helpful informational links, but is most interesting for its section on live webcams and virtual tours of Italian cities or historical points of interest.

- Italian History on the Web Links to sites on periods of Italian history (the Renaissance or the Unification) as well as specific cultural institutions (the Papacy) and historical figures (Christopher Columbus).

- Tricolore: Home of Italians on the Net A beautifully designed site that includes sections on music, art, food, wine, geography, and history. A great introduction to the various facets of Italy.

- European History: Italy Provides links to sites for general (or “common”) Italian history as well as sites that offer more regional information. Also includes several interesting links to sites on Italian education and military.

- Cultura Italiana: The ultimate guide to links on every facet of Italian culture and history. Particularly useful are the links to Italian universities and to the online version of all Italian newspapers.

4. Academic Sites: For those who are actually studying Italian here at Stanford and would like access to resources for the study of Italian language or literature, there are many websites designed to assist with Italian in an academic way. Some of these sites are designed for those learning Italian as a foreign language, and some are designed as online resources for Italian students.

- Studenti This portal for Italian students provides a section of “Appunti” (Notes) that contains study guides, helpful questions, and socio-historical background for most major works of Italian literature.

- Lingua e Letteratura Italiana This extremely comprehensive list of links connects you to grammatical summaries, biographies of important historical/cultural figures, information on specific literary movements, and language sites that feature vocabulary lists and online placement tests.

- Garzanti Linguistica While the main part of this site is reserved to those who have purchased a Garzanti product, the Italian and Italian-English dictionaries are extremely useful for quick reference.

- Italiano e Dialetti For those interested in the regional variations in the Italian language as well as online resources that approach Italian from a more technical, linguistic perspective, this site offers a variety of useful links.

5. Fun Sites: Because no cultural experience can take place without examining        what other cultures do for fun and the things that they enjoy, I have compiled this list of sites that expose you to the sites that Italians themselves visit when they surf the web.

- La Gazzetta dello Sport The ultimate resource for Italians seeking the latest sports news, statistics, and scores (and by sports, of course, I do mean “calcio”!)

- Vivacity A site that allows Italians to search for events, singles, and business listings in their city. Also offers free text messages to Italy if you complete a free registration process.

- Il primo sito italiano di cinema A site that announces and reviews upcoming films. Interesting because it offers an Italian perspective on the American movies that are released internationally.

- Barzellette! The largest collection of Italian humor online. Jokes, riddles, funny pictures and videos, and a chance to subscribe to the site’s e-newsletter.

- Musica Italiana Connects you to Italy’s Top 20, samples of current Italian hits, information on concerts, and links to online fan clubs or fan pages.

- Cartoline The Italian version of Yahoo’s E-Greeting Cards, this website allows you to send an Italian friend or a fellow Casa resident birthday wishes, congratulations, or a simple “ciao.”

And of course, while I have no specific site to recommend, you can use any of the search engines in section 1 to search for Italian information on your favorite Italian celebrity, movie, film, or singer.

Italian Dialect Poetry

Sito di poesia dialettale veneta. "El Graspo" (grappolo) è il nome del circolo di poeti dialettali di Thiene, in provincia di Vicenza, il cui sito Internet è diventato luogo d'incontro e scambio culturale tra i vicentini e i veneti residenti nel mondo. Nel circolo dei poeti dialettali, nato nel 1985, si creano e si confrontano le parole venete in disuso.
Il sito Internet è interamente dedicato a questo circolo di poeti dialettali, le cui pagine web propongono la poesia e tutto ciò che riguarda la tradizione veneta. Ideatore ed anima del progetto è il prof. Giuseppe Zuccollo, che mensilmente lancia nuove iniziative per l'allestimento del sito poetico.
