La Stampa is an Italian daily newspaper published in Turin. It is distributed in Italy and other European nations. The publication is owned by Fiat SpA.


It was founded in 1867 with the name Gazzetta Piemontese. In 1895, the newspaper was bought (and by then edited) by Alfredo Frassati (father of Pier Giorgio Frassati), who gave it its current name and a national perspective. For criticising the 1924 murder of the socialist Giacomo Matteotti, he was forced to resign and sell the newspaper to Giovanni Agnelli.[citation needed]

It launched a website in 1999. La Stampa also launched a project, called Vatican Insider, run by the daily newspaper and has among its staff several Vatican affairs analysts.[2]

Since May 26, 2006, it has published a monthly magazine: Specchio+ (Mirror). From January 26, 1999, to April 7, 2006, it was called Specchio and was published as a weekly magazine.

In the last years, many rumors were defused about the buyout of La Stampa by Italian publishers such as Caltagirone Editore, Gruppo Editoriale L'Espresso and De Agostini.[citation needed] The editor of the paper is Mario Calabresi.[3]
