Welcome to CiaoSA

The social business platform connecting Italian entrepreneurs in South Africa.

CiaoSA was born to facilitate the process of bringing together the Italian community in South Africa by providing a virtual marketplace. Indeed, this website was conceived as a public place, a sort of meeting room, free of any charge, where anyone belonging to the Italian community will be able to exchange information, open discussions, ask for recommendations and help, and possibly meet like-minded professionals and individuals. 

CiaoSA is a tool for the community, by the community.

Therefore, any help to improve and sustain the project by the community itself will be essential. Please go ahead and join as a member, write some articles for us and upload some pictures - use your profile to contribute to the conversation.
If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to send an email to: capetown.stage@esteri.it
