Italian speakers include those that have regional language capabilities, such as Emiliano-Romagnolo, Friulian, Ladin, Ligurian, Lombardic, Napolitano, Occitan, Piedmontese, Sardinian, Sicilian, and Venetian. Example screenshots of Italy Google in relevant alternative languages are given throughout this article.

Google 'Italy'

When you Google 'Italy' or 'Italia', the top page 1 search results you receive are those for information sites, such as Wikipedia, Italian government tourism sites, Lonely Planet, and World Factbook. These give most of the information you may need concerning Italy.

Italy (population ~58m) became a republic in 1946. It is located in southern Europe. It comprises a long peninsula jutting into the Mediterranean, and two main islands of Sicily (to the south) and Sardinia (to the west). The total area of Italy is around 116k square miles. It is a member of the European Union, with the Euro as it's currency.

The Alps form the northern border with France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. The Adriatic sea to the east separates Italy from Albania and former Yugoslavian states: Croatia, Bosnia Herzegovina, and Montenegro. The Apennine mountain range runs down the middle of the peninsula, forming a backbone. The Po valley lies between the Alps and the Apennines. This forms a great fertile lowland area. Sicily and Sardinia are largely mountainous.

A lot of Italy is geologically unstable, with four active volcanoes (Etna, Vesuvius, Stromboli, and Vulcano). It enjoys warm dry summers and mild winters (with snow in the mountains, however).

The north is the main industrial area, with motor vehicle, textile, clothing, leather good, glass, and ceramic manufacturers. There is also an important agricultural industry which is generally well mechanised, with the farms in the south being small and traditional. An active tourist industry (an important foreign currency earner) is maintained throughout the year, due in part to the climate, and in part to the outstanding historical monuments of Ancient Rome, and also from the Renaissance.

Rome is the capital, with other major cities being Milan, Naples, Turin, Genoa and Palermo. The religion is unsurprisingly Roman Catholic.

How To See Italy Sites or Italian Language Sites

Once you could limit search to obtain local country, or local language, search results. This facility is no longer available. Businesses are now no longer able to undertake competition analysis, locally, using Google (Yahoo local does facilitate this requirement..

For Google there is an alternative: Firefox Google search, for Italy. With this, businesses can undertake local business analysis, by limiting the search to obtain local Italian results.

Using the Firefox URL:

  • http://www.google.it/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:it-IT:official

gives Italy results in Italian. This URL works with any browser (see the screenshot below).

When on the Firefox page ensure the Cerca (Search) 'pagine in Italiano ' or 'pagine provenienti da: Italia ' button is set, instead of Cerca 'nel Web' button.

You will get either pages written in Italian, or Italy pages, determined by which button you set.
