The '''Chiesa Ortodossa in Italia''' (''Orthodox Church in Italy'') is an effort to establish a national Orthodox church in Italy.  It was a part of the [[Old Calendarist]] movement, which then joined Patriarch Pimen's Alternative Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church and adopted reformed Julian calendar (New Calendar).  It is currently out of communion with the mainstream Orthodox Church.
