Federation of the Italian Music Industry

Federation of the Italian Music Industry

The FIMI (short for Federazione Industria Musicale Italiana; Federation of the Italian Music Industry in English) is an umbrella organization that keeps track of virtually all aspects of the music recording industry in Italian.

The FIMI homepage as it is currently configured has no English information, but the left-hand menu bar, under "notizie" and then "classifiche" provides sales rankings on all categories of music sold in Italy.

Due to the decrease of CD singles sales in Italy, FIMI replaced its physical singles chart with a digital downloads chart—based on legal Internet and mobile downloads—on January 1, 2008.
