Facebook Groups are a key part of social media. They connect specific groups of people with a common interest, like those head over heels in love with Italy like us at Italian Talks!
These groups allow you to view and share updates, photos and posts related to the things you care about with others who share your passion for all things Italian.
Since at Italian Talks we are constantly looking to make connections with those who share our passion, we’ve decided to share 15 of our favorite Facebook groups for Italy lovers. These groups will help you really get under the skin of Italian culture.
Read on to discover, connect and enjoy!

This group has more than 1500 members and we like it as a wonderful way to learn about wines in Italy, as well as the right foods to pair with them. You’ll be able to advance your understanding of the Italian language since most posts are in Italian.
The Sons and Daughters of Italy
“One of the most important visions of this group is to preserve our Italian culture, especially in light of our ancestors. We endeavor to teach and remind our children about our common ancestry in food, places, people, attitude, character, soul and spirit of being Italian–which is the soul of our ethnic identity. We also endeavor to preserve our natural Italian language (della lingua italiana), in order for this and the next generation to capture and appreciate the beauty of our “Romance Language.”
A popular active Facebook group we like because of the large following and frequency of posts. It’s like being part of a family.
Italian Cuisine, Culture and Travel
“Post anything regarding Italian cuisine, culture or travel: tips, recipes, places to shop, delicious restaurants, trattorie, cafe’s, ingredients, traditions, travel advice/tips, wisdom, you name it.”
A favorite because of its focus on Italian food and regional cuisine: is there anywhere better than Italy for gastro-tourism?
