I don't know if this is the right forum to put this in, or if I should put this in the General Discussions one. Please move it, mods, if that's the case.

I am in search of some new Italian music or TV shows, or videos I can watch from Youtube while I'm at work or at home. Just something so I can get a better grip of Italian. I learned this way with Swedish and it helped tremendously. Any recommendations?

I'd personally advise people to use this method only after they've reached a certain degree of fluency, but it's also true that some methods work better with some people. Problem is, TV shows, music and YT videos frequently have a lot of colloquialisms and dialectal terms that might get you a little bit confused.

I don't really have any TV show to recommend honestly. TV series are quite boring as most of them are about police investigations. There's a docu-reality show that's gaining a lot of success lately called "Il Collegio". It's about a group of teenagers attending a 60's-style school with all the rules and teachings of that time. You can easily find the episodes on YT (you need to look for the playlists though, because the videos include only parts of the entire episodes). There's also this website that lets you livestream TV programmes from any country.

As for Italian music, I really don't know. I don't listen a lot to it. You may want to check some collections about it here on LT, especially the Sanremo ones. Singers like Laura Pausini, Tiziano Ferro or Eros Ramazzotti are quite famous worldwide. The newcomers usually get some visibility on talent shows and the most mainstream artists eventually participate in Sanremo. You can also check the music trends on the Italian YT feed, although most are rap songs and I don't know if that's your genre.

There a lot of YT channels I know, but I don't know your style. If you gave me more info about what you like and you don't like, I could help you better.

Thank you for all of this Dark Joshua. As for music I like just about anything as long as it isn’t techno or country, so that I’m sure doesn’t help because that’s still really vague haha.

For YouTube content, I’m honestly not sure. The only YouTube stuff I watch in English are Markiplier and stuff about linguistics and the occasional Vietnamese lessons. So I’m pretty open to recommendations. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Despite colloquialisms doing this helped me learn Swedish but I hardly watch Swedish TV shows anymore so I can’t ubderstnd spoken Swedish at all and I don’t want that to happen with Italian too. I guess I’ll see how it goes.

I've been looking for content about linguistics in Italian for years, but there's nothing. I'd start my own channel about it, if I didn't hate putting myself under the spotlight... such a shame.
There's a channel I've stumbled upon several times called "Learn Italian with Lucrezia". I've watched some videos of her out of curiosity and she really seems to be a good teacher. I didn't watch too much of her content though, because I'm not interested in learning Italian, as I already speak it lol.
"Muriel" and "ShantiLives" speak a lot about LGBTQ+ issues, self-healing and self-care, so if that's what you're into, you may want to check them out.
"Favij" is the most popular and the one with most subscribers in Italy. He's mainly a gamer and if you're interested in the gaming field, you should absolutely check him out because lots of gamers would try to be featured in his videos and get close to him. He's really popular, so it's understandable.
"Tia Taylor" is an American girl living in Milan. Her videos are mostly in English, but you can find one or two videos of her speaking Italian. She talks about the life of an expat in Italy.
"Willwoosh" is very popular as well. Don't know him so much. His content is really diverse. Lately he's been making a lot of videos where he tries (and fails) to cook and others where he comments his followers' personal experiences.
If you're into make up, "ClioMakeUp" is the most popular channel. She actually was the very first one to bring such a content on the Italian YT and she rose to fame years ago when she had her own TV show about make up.

I would recommend you more, but most of them are very close to each other, they often make collaborations and stuff, so knowing one you eventually end up discovering the others.

This is awesome, grazie mille Joshua! Hopefully someone will come out with that linguistics channel in Italian someday. (Maybe when my Swedish is better I’ll do one in Swedish even). But I’ll check out all of these except for maybe the makeup one, not really my thing.

Oh for TV I like cooking shows too. Do you know of any that I can stream internationally?

Mhh... problem is, I don't know how you can watch Italian tv abroad. I've lived abroad for a while and I couldn't get any Italian programme or channel, so that would be the biggest problem...
I'm sure there are some recipe tutorial out there. The most popular website is giallozafferano.it, if you want to try to cook like an Italian. I should maybe look into these things more myself...

I know that, for example, in Sweden you can download the SVT app and there are a few shows you can watch internationally (but I can imagine this can be bypassed pretty easily with a VPN, tbh) and none of them are very good, mostly news and other random stuff. Australia has something similar with SBS on demand, but I think you can't watch things abroad. I don't know if this helps but would you know if there is something similar for Italy? I can get a VPN if I need to.

The biggest broadcasters in Italy are Rai and Mediaset. https://www.raiplay.it doesn't work abroad, so you really need a VPN. As for https://www.mediasetplay.mediaset.it I really don't know. Knowing Italians, I think you need a VPN for that too, but I'm not completely sure.

Alright, I'll see what I can do as far as getting a VPN goes. I really appreciate your help, Joshua. I'm taking learning Italian a lot more seriously than most languages I'm learning because I actually wanna be able to use it.
