Vittorio Feltri (born 25 June 1943) is an Italian journalist and editor in chief.

Biography[edit]

Feltri was born in Bergamo, Italy. He started his career as journalist in 1962, writing film reviews for the local newspaper L'Eco di Bergamo. In 1977 he moved to the Corriere della Sera.

In 1993 Feltri refused the offer of Silvio Berlusconi to get involved in Fininvest. The next year he agreed to become editor of il Giornale, controlled by Berlusconi, after its founder Indro Montanelli left. He was its editor until 1997. In the same period, he contributed to other newspapers and magazines, like Panorama, Il Foglio and Il Messaggero. In 2000, he founded the right-wing newspaper Libero, which he ran until 2009. In August 2009, he once again became the editor of Berlusconi's il Giornale.

He is an atheist.[1]
