In a welcome letter on the home page of Amazon Italy Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO of Amazon, welcomes Italian buyers. He says the first order shipped to Italy from Amazon was on the 3rd August 2005 and since then millions of orders have been shipped to Italy, but this is the first time Italians have been able to order on their own country specific site.
