ellou' Giuseppe, welcome on the list!

There're two 'serious' blogging extensions for TYPO3 (btw. remember that 
the using capitalics in the name is the official way), one it's TIMTAB 
Weblog (ext:timtab) and second, much younger is T3BLOG (ext:t3blog) and 
they both templates themselves (what is mean that you don't need to use 
additional templating mechanism until you don't need additional - 
non-blog - pages)

TIMTAB is based on tt_news extension, and just adds to the common news 
blogging features. That means that is required to install and configure 
tt_news first.

T3BLOG is standalone extension however it's little bit harder to 
configure as it's based on the tons of TypoScript code

Generally I would choose the T3BLOG as it's just newer and fresher piece 
of code.

 From my personal practice I can advice that's probably the best way is 
to build a fragment of standart TYPO3 webservice in the main domain and 
use the subdomain in the separate branch of the PageTree for the blog 
(in both cases), however it's also possible (and quite hard) to mix both 
resources into one part. All depends on your needs...

One thing I need to say is: be brave ;] altought TYPO3 is powerful 
system some tasks require more of work as it's required to join 
different types of content into one piece and joining the blog 
functionality is (unfortuantely) quite right confirmation of my words :/

Good luck!
