About us

ItalyRivierAlps is the online daily newspaper of the geographical and cultural region of the “Alps of the Sea”, which stretches from the Maritime Alps to the Italian and French Riviera.

The RivierAlps region is one of the most essential parts of the Alpine Macro-Region and the Alps-Mediterranean Euroregion: it includes cities as important as Nice, Montecarlo (Monaco), Sanremo, Alassio and Alba.

ItalyRivierAlps continues the work started with Targato CN UK, the English section of Targato CN, the most-read newspaper in the Province of Cuneo.

The mission of our newsroom is to provide people from all over the world with comprehensive information about all the latest news and events, travel itineraries, gastronomy, typical products, and business opportunities from the area.

ItalyRivierAlps is a newspaper, not a blog or a tourism website. Its aim is to tell the facts about a region very rich of art and culture by adopting a journalistic approach that can make it more accessible, in all its aspects, to international visitors.

The newspaper is currently published in three international editions: English, German and Russian.
