Mondo Italiano Newspaper was founded and started selling advertising in 1999. The first in-print publication hit the streets on June 1st 2000. The first ever copy was all in black and white and featured Tony n' Tina's Wedding on the front cover. We published 12,000 copies monthly distributed at local Italian restaurants in the twin-cities area of Minnesota. Business partner and Italian-American Brian Frauly (RIP) handled advertising sales and distribution and Jay handled editorial and design.
The founder moved back to Florida in early 2003. We now operate as Mondo Italiano Magazine, a luxury lifestyle publication with a global presence. We are part of Luxury Chamber Media Group which includes: SOUTH FLORIDA magazine, SOUTHWEST FLORIDA magazine, MEDITERRANEAN MAGAZINE, Republican Magazine and Latin South Florida Magazine. Our media group also consists over over 200 managed social media groups and pages related to varying cultural and luxury lifestyle topics.
