Last night I was happy to read that the Italian Government seems to be working towards a fair retribution for freelance journalists. 

The article appeared on Il Corriere della Sera on 28 March explained that the Camera (The House of the Senate) approved a legislation proposal to offer fair payments to Italian freelancers and discourage publication to exploit underpaid labour. 

Shall the proposal be approved by the Senate too, newspapers and media publications will no longer qualify to receive state funding unless they comply with the new retribution scheme for freelancers. 

I hope this will be just the first step towards the renaissance of Italian journalism.
