Many of the writers associated with the project are U.S. citizens, as is its editor. We wanted a strong identity. Since Italy once had a daily newspaper in English called the Rome Daily American (1945-1984) we decided to revive the name. The magazine was founded in March 2004.

To provide an eloquent, alert monthly online magazine that helps to inform the national community about Italian cultural and political life. We hope to be useful to English-speakers and Italians alike. Our goal is to provide interesting information and provocative, personal insight.

We don’t have a fixed office staff. Therefore we have no positions available. If you’re interested in becoming involved in The American project as a writer or contributor, feel free to write to us. We’re always interested in talent. Write to the editor.
What’s your pay scale for freelance contributions?americamag532018-03-07T10:27:48+01:00
Yes. If you send us a 150-word blurb (not a word more!) with the basic information about a restaurant (see our format) we’ll take a look and let you know if we can use it. No promises. No cash. We’re trying to provide a service to our readers. Please send your information in the body of a text message or as a Word attachment to Christopher Winner.
No. The American is an entirely pro bono project, a volunteer writer’s collective. It also does not accept sponsored content in any form. No money changes hands (aside from payments made to web hosting firms and developers.)
