Detail from La CreazioneThe purpose of this web site is to present the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in the Land of Italy, in its most meaningful and diverse aspects.

   Although the presence of the Church in Italy is relatively recent, the events that have taken place during this period of time have defined the national identity of the Church and determined its impact among the Italian people.

   The knowledge and understanding of these events are fundamental premises to appreciate what the Church is today and what it will become in the future.
