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

Its rather evocative name means "the change you get from a Carlino," the smallest part of the Papal bajocco, 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.

It is indirectly owned by a group of Italian industrialists, and reflects their political stance.
