What is Parola del Giorno?

Parola del Giorno is a language newsletter that shares tips on Italian grammar and growing your Italian vocabulary by sharing with our readers unique words and expressions.

I have been publishing the web site www.paroladelgiorno.com since 2015 and the web site has also published a number of language guides. Several co-authors and collaborators have helped in the realization of this project over the years.
