il Resto del Carlino is an Italian newspaper based in Bologna, and is one of the oldest newspapers in Italy.

History and profile[edit]

Its rather evocative name means "the change you get from a Carlino," the smallest part of the Papal baiocco, which was legal tender at the time, when a sheet of local news was given out in shops to make up for any change owing after buying a cigar.

As of 1988 the owner was Monti.[2] The 1988 circulation of the paper, based in Bologna, was 310,000 copies.[2]
