Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno is an Italian daily newspaper, founded in 1887 in Bari, Italy. It is one of the most important newspapers published in Southern Italy, with most of its readers living in Apulia and Basilicata[citation needed].

History[edit]

The newspaper was founded in 1887 in Bari, Italy by the magazine editor Martino Cassano to fill the niche for a local newspaper in Bari despite Apulia's high rate of illiteracy; it measured at 70% in 1905[citation needed]. Originally published as the Corriere delle Puglie, it assumed its current title in 1906.

Local editions[edit]
