I Giorni (2002) is a music album by the Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi. The album's title translates as "The Days" in English.

The solo piano track of the same name has been featured on a BBC advert for arts and culture programmes. The same solo track has also been used in a commercial for the Indian telecom service provider Airtel, to launch its 3G services in the sub-continent in November 2010.[1]

The title track, "I Giorni" has had a lot of interest due to Greg James' airing in June 2011 of the piece on BBC Radio 1.[2] The song entered the UK Singles Chart at number 32 on 12 June 2011.[3] It featured in the Amazon Prime advert "Vicar and Imam" in late 2016.[4] The single was certified silver for 200,000 sold copies in United Kingdom in 2017.
