The Italian national football team is the national football team of Italy and is controlled by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC - Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio).

Italy is considered one of the most successful national teams, having won three World Cups (193419381982), one European championship (1968), and one Olympic Gold Medal (1936).

The traditional jersey colour of the national team (as well as of all Italian teams and athletes, except in motor sports) is sky blue (azzurro, in Italian), and therefore national team members are nicknamed Azzurri.
