Giornale di Sicilia is an Italian daily national newspaper for the island of Sicily. It is based in Palermo,[1] and is the best-selling newspaper in Sicily.[2]

History and profile[edit]

Giornale di Sicilia was founded in 1860, immediately following the Expedition of the Thousand headed by Giuseppe Garibaldi; it was first published on 7 June of that year under the name "Giornale Officiale di Sicilia" with Girolamo Ardizzone as its first editor-in-chief.

The paper played a significant role in nationalizing the Italian rural women in Sicily at the beginning of the 1900s.[3]

It is published in ten different local versions, one for each province of Sicily plus another one for the city of Palermo.

Giornale di Sicilia had a circulation of 67,216 copies in 2004.[4] The circulation of the paper was 67,332 copies in 2008.[5]
