Google has introduced a new cloud region in Turin, Italy. The company did not disclose the new region's details or specs, although it did note that it has three availability zones and offers standard GCP services. After a busy 2022, it is the first new region the company has introduced in 2023. Google Cloud has now created a second region in Italy. In June 2022, the company, in collaboration with TIM, launched a region in Milan and disclosed plans for the Turin region. According to Elio Schiavo, TIM's chief enterprise and innovation solutions officer, their collaboration with Google Cloud is crucial for digitizing businesses, government agencies, and individuals. The two regions are a significant outcome of this partnership and a unique asset that makes it possible to provide low latency, connection, and data sovereignty features. So, it is a strategic infrastructure that will bring about significant economic gains and positive effects for the whole industrial sector nationally. 

While Oracle built a region in Milan in 2021, Amazon Web Services (AWS) opened its Italian region there in 2020. In 2020, Microsoft made intentions to create a region in Milan, although it has not yet done so. Only Google has a region in Turin out of the other three. In addition to Berlin, Germany, Querétaro, Mexico, Johannesburg, South Africa, Dammam, Saudi Arabia, Doha, Qatar, and Kuwait, Google is also creating cloud regions here. Google established GCP regions in 2022 in Dallas, Texas, Columbus, Ohio, and Milan, Italy. Moreover, it started constructing data centers in Omaha, Nebraska, and Columbus, Ohio. The company has purchased land in Hamina, Finland; Groningen, the Netherlands; and the Northland of Kansas City.
