"Hi Francesca, I like your article but I am not 100% sure that the problem lies in the rise of non-professional journalists. I'd rather think that maybe the industry needs new ideas not just about the content they provide but the format this…"

"Brilliant post! Great (and sadly true) insights of the state of the journalistic profession in Italy. But I like to think that one day things will change....yes even in Italy where nothing ever does. Maybe the solution is to cut out the middle men…"

". . .   Excellent atmosphere to this report. It ably describes the reality facing more and more journalists, as days turn to weeks, months and years.   Unfortunately it is this preoccupation with "business models" that is the…"

A (dismal) tour of Italian newsrooms

Posted on April 29, 2011 at 18:00 4 Comments

As any good freelancer knows, it is a good habit to go and visit your editors personally whenever you have a chance to be in your home country. So I am just back from a tour of the newsrooms I work/have worked with in Milan, Italy, and the mood is rather gloomy. Empty seats and switched-off computers, dramatic cuts in working time, forced retirements, those who still cling on to their seats working desperately to achieve at least the same quality as before.

Even the editor in chief of…


Update - Hunger strike at Corriere della Sera

Posted on November 17, 2010 at 23:00 2 Comments

An update on the hunger strike initiated by Paola Caruso, journalist at Corriere della Sera.

Paola ended her protest today after 5 days without food. She received hundreds of messages of solidarity from the web, from colleagues who are in the same situation but also from senior editors in other media: Alessandro Gilioli, senior editor at l’Espresso, wrote that this episode, perhaps the first of its kind in Italy, is not a good sign, neither for journalism nor for Italy.… Continue

Hunger strike at Corriere della Sera, Italy's most prestigious daily

Posted on November 16, 2010 at 23:30 6 Comments

Paola Caruso, journalist at Corriere della Sera, Italy's leading daily, has started a hunger strike to protest against her precarious working contract. Paola has been working for 7 years at Corriere, always on 1 year "flexible" contracts, which give no right to social contribution, maternity leave, sickness or paid leave.

In theory these are contracts for free-lancers, and they should not be renewed year after year, but in practice they are used for those who work as staff journalists… Continue

That thin line

Posted on November 6, 2010 at 16:56 1 Comment

The line between journalism and professional communication (public relations, marketing, advertising and such) is getting thinner. As institutions and multinationals invest more and more in efforts to improve their image, the media are getting weaker and weaker, as well as increasingly commercially-driven. Every day we hear of newspapers and newswires cutting on staff expenses, and if we look at Brussels, for example, the press corps has shrinked dramatically over the last few years.

Development and State-building in South Sudan.

By Apollo Kut AlierDevelopment and State-building in South Sudan.28 March 2014 at 21:58There are a few things the government of South Sudan cannot risk to grapple with. One is the stance it adopts towards the so-called rebels; the armed men and women who have receded to the woods in defiance of Juba. Their misgivings may be ill-placed, and at times even wild,but that is no reason to ignore them.The government is better off opening doors of dialogue with this malcontents than seeking to bomb…See More
