L'Armonia was an Italian language newspaper established in Turin in July 1848.[1][2] The paper was established by a Catholic priest Giacomo Margotti and other priests.[1][2] Margotti also edited the paper.[3] It was ultra-conservative and Catholic in orientation. Its mission was to support for the Catholic Church.[2] The paper holds the distinction of being the first publication in Italian to publish an account and several sections of the Book of Mormon.[4] This content was published on 1 August 1853 in a supplement.[4]

Among other causes, the paper opposed Italian unification.
