Italy women's national softball team is one of the top-ranked softball teams in Europe.

The Italian team has won the ESF Women's Championship eleven times (leader in Europe). The latest European title came in Ostrava, where Italy hit more than 40 home runs in 12 games and beat the Netherlands in a tight final contest. Later in the year, the Italian team won the WBSC Olympic Softball Qualifier by beating all five opponents and eventually qualified for the Olympic tournament in Tokyo.

The first participation in the World Championships took place in 1974, where Italy finished in 7th place. The team competed at the 1990 ISF Women's World Championship in Normal, Illinois where they finished with 6 wins and 3 losses. The team competed at the 1994 ISF Women's World Championship in St. John's, Newfoundland where they finished eleventh. The team competed at the 1998 ISF Women's World Championship in Fujinomiya City, Japan where they finished sixth.

The team competed at the 2002 ISF Women's World Championship in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where they finished seventh. The team competed at the 2006 ISF Women's World Championship in Beijing, China where they finished sixth. After finishing out of the top 8 in the three following World Championship editions, Italy came back in 2018, in Chiba, and took seventh place thanks to a four-game winning streak that eliminated, among others, China from the medal contention. In the fight for sixth place, Italy was beaten by Mexico in a tight 1–0 loss after two extra-innings.
