The idea of this list comes from a discussion on La Tana dei Goblin http://nuke.goblins.net, the main Italian community of gamers. The Italian game industry is more lively than ever: following the paths of Spartaco Albertarelli, Leo Colovini, Dario De Toffoli, Marco Donadoni, Walter Obert, whose games crossed the bonduaries of my country well before the end of the '90a, a whole generation of Italian designers is now published and distributed abroad.

Here you have a selection of the BGG Top 10
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame
with all the games by at least one Italian author. Feel free to add new ones - you are warmly invited to do it! - and please fill the gaps. I could of course have missed something, and new games will be ranked soon or rise from the bottom.
But please add only ranked games.

I left out on purpose Scopa and Briscola, and would leave out other truly Italian but uncredited games. I also used a pretty straighforward definition of "Italian" author meaning more or less born, grown up and living here, with a grain of salt. I left out for example some very important and famous designers that moved into Italy
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/2628
and Duccio Vitale, who was born in Paris and grew up abroad, even if he is also an Italian citizen. No intention to build walls or fences to keep anybody out of the list, anyway, so feel free to propose a different point of view.

Making this list has been a surprise for myself: I discovered some games that I did not know they had Italian authors, and others that I did not know at all. Read it, click on the game pages, have fun.

A big thank to janus' and n_and's lists about "Italian Style", that gave inspiration and a first, high quality documentation to start with. Have a look at them and you will find far more games from my country, ranked and unranked.

It would IMHO be interesting to see similar lists for other countries, especially the ones with less tradition and more recent activity, but I leave it to BGGers of those nations who know their local gaming scene better than me.

Note on list order: the games are in rank order, but this is not authomatically updated when the general Top 10 changes. When you notice that games here are not in rank order (the rank is at the top of the entry, in brackets), you can put order in the list by yourself. Add any game to the list: even unranked, even non Italian... and then delete it. All the games will go at their proper places, in rank order.
