Launches in Italy

Nov. 29, 2010, the Seattle-based e-commerce giant last week launched its service in Italy. The company said is launching with more product categories than any other Amazon Website has launched with. “On Aug. 3, 1995, we shipped our first order to Italy from the U.S.,” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of “A customer in Genova ordered a book called ‘Ranks of Bronze’. Since then, we’ve shipped millions of items across a broad range of categories to customers in Italy, from our websites around the world. We are now excited to open our virtual doors directly to Italian customers.”
