Il Tirreno is a regional Italian newspaper, printed in Livorno and published in Tuscany. Il Tirreno also features sixteen local editions around the whole region.

It was founded in 1877 under the name Il Telegrafo, with a moderate centrist political line. During the fascist regime, it was owned by the Ciano family. Following the Liberation, it was replaced in 1945 by Il Tirreno, and switched to a left-wing policy. From 1957 to 1976 it was known again as Il Telegrafo, but then resumed using its current name. It is currently owned by the media company Gruppo Editoriale L'Espresso.
