Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” a road movie about two women who escape from a mental institution in Tuscany, took top honors Monday night at Italy’s 61st David di Donatello Awards, the country’s equivalent of the Oscars. The film took home five statuettes, including prizes in the key categories of best picture, best director, and best actress, which went to Valeria Bruni Tedeschi.

Italy is proposing a hill town in Umbria and a religious festival in the mountain city of L’Aquila for World Heritage status. Both attractions are located in the mountainous centre of the country, which has been hit hard by earthquakes.

A young Irish boy who flew to Italy for life-saving treatment has received a special blessing from Pope Francis.

Italy could soon become the first Western country to offer paid ‘menstrual leave’ to women who experience painful periods.

Italian police are investigating the discovery of a woman’s body stuffed in a suitcase that was found floating at a marina in the Adriatic port of Rimini.

Thousands of people took to the streets on Tuesday in a protest organized by anti-mafia organization Libera. The main march took place in Locri in Calabria - the toe of Italy's boot, but sister marches were organized across the country alongside other events aimed at raising awareness of mafia violence.

In what's being considered one of the biggest "wine and cheese busts" in recent Italian history, a group of ten people have been arrested by police for stealing more than $250,000 in fine wines and gourmet cheeses.

Events are unfolding rapidly in Westminster after a terrorist incident outside the Houses of Parliament.

Hollywood precedent notwithstanding, an Italian bishop has announced that known members of the mafia cannot be godparents for the Catholic sacraments of baptism or confirmation.

Italy’s president, whose brother was murdered by Cosa Nostra, traveled on Sunday to an organized crime stronghold to honor hundreds of Italians slain by the country’s crime clans over the past decades.

President Sergio Mattarella also praised the judges, prosecutors, police officers, union leaders, businessmen and politicians who courageously combatted or denounced organized crime.
