"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.

Every… Continue

Journalism – not just who but where?

Journalism – not just who but where?Although many in the business of journalism tend to see their problems collectively, in the same light – a band of brothers and sisters stretching across the globe, this is not always the case. It is a question not only of who but where. Does this mean that freedom of speech should be forgotten or downgraded, of course not,  but we may have to…See More

What is a 'foreign philosophy?'

In considering the question of the ability for integration into culture, which is necessary to get residence in some European countries, I ask this question:  What is the effect of a person living in a foreign boarding school, or a school run along the lines of a foreign philosophy?  For example: If a person who does not live in…See More
