i-Italy is the largest multimedia network in English dedicated to Italy, based in New York City. It is made of:
A web portal (www.i-Italy.org),
A bi-monthly free-press magazine circulating 50,000 copies in New York (here is the pdf version of the latest issue: www.i-italyny.com/magazine/2016-02_03)
A weekly TV show airing every Sunday on NYCTV, Channel 25, the Public Broadcasting Station of the City of New York, available on demand on our WebTV (i-italyTV.com) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/iitaly)
A very active social network centered on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/iitaly).
We are a group of journalists, academics and “public intellectuals” determined to create an authoritative point of encounter, information, and debate on the Internet concerning Italy and Italian America.
i-Italy is a TV, a print magazine and a multimedia, bilingual web project which focuses on three major fields:
1) Information and discussion on current, social and cultural events: with the areas “Magazine” and “Multimedia,” where articles, movies, photos and audio files are published;
2) In-depth examination and cultural debate: with the areas “Op-eds” and “Specials,” which host opinions, comments, columns, analyses, and reviews;
3) Community building/social networking: with the areas “Bloggers” and “Community,” where all readers can freely present their own experiences and opinions with personal pages, forums, discussion groups.
The National Italian American Foundation and i-Italy have partnered to offer 2 internship opportunities for recent graduates interested in building the basis for a career in media while furthering their proficiency in the Italian language. This internship aims to give recent graduates a strong basis for their entry into the workforce and a robust first work experience on their resume. The internship will be part-time at the i-Italy headquarters in New York City with full Italian language immersion. Interns will report to i-Italy five days a week including some weekends and holidays. Interns will be provided a $1,000/month stipend. Duration of internship: 10 months.
