Under the non-binding agreement, sections of TIN or the Telecom Italia Net site will be programmed by Excite. The Redwood City, CA-based portal player will also lend its search and directory services to the site for Italian language versions.
Launch of the Excite-powered Italian area is scheduled for sometime later this year pending approval of agreements between the companies.
Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.
"Telecom Italia is a very strategic and strong partner for our continuing expansion into Europe, " added George Bell, President and CEO of Excite, Inc. "We are excited to add Italy, a very important European economy and a particularly fast-growing internet market, to our other European initiatives."
