Huffington Post to launch Italian edition

19 Jan 2012

The Huffington Post's UK edition

The Huffington Post Media Group and Gruppo Editoriale L’Espresso have joined forces to launch L’Huffington Post Italy, an Italian-language version of the news and opinion website.

L’Huffington Post Italy is recruiting an editorial team in preparation for its launch before the end of the year.

The partnership will combine The Huffington Post‘s platform with local expertise and an Italian editorial network. It will also combine the local editorial expertise of Gruppo Espresso, publisher of the first Italian newspaper, La Repubblica, and of the news magazine L’Espresso, with The Huffington Post‘s combination of reporting, aggregation, commenting forum and social engagement tools, and platform for bloggers.

The Huffington Post has recently been working on other international editions. The Huffington Post UK and The Huffington Post Canada both launched last year. Le Huffington Post France launches on Monday, Le Huffington Post Quebec is scheduled to launch in February, and El Huffington Post Spain is scheduled to launch in March.
