L'Italiano is an Italian daily newspaper published in Argentina


Founded in Rome in 2006,[1] by a group of journalists interested in question related to Italians abroad from a center-right perspective, according to a project devised by Cav. Gian Luigi Ferretti, who was its first director. In 2010 L’Italiano is launched in Argentina using content edited and transmitted from Rome. Right afterwards, L’Italiano transforms itself in a truly Argentinean daily newspaper in Italian language and at the same time abandons its political center-right orientation to become an independent newspaper not only with a strong Italian news section but also with ample space to news from the Argentine-Italian community and Italians abroad.

Distribution and Contents[edit]

L'Italiano is published from Tuesday to Saturdays in Argentina, with 12 pages in tabloid format. It is distributed in the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires, where more than 400.000 currently live. L’Italiano can also be read on PC, tablets and smartphones and in 2013 became the first Italian newspaper abroad to have an own app at the iOS App Store.[2]

L'Italiano sponsored the creation of “Italia nel mondo”,[3] a collection of historical and social research about global Italian emigration [4] with the aim of giving ample space to these types of studies. The first publications of these collection are: "L'Altra Italia" by Stefano Pelaggi (historical emigration and juvenile mobility compared) [5] - "Il divario" by Luca Marfé, Emanuele Schibotto (Globalization, Emigration and South).[6] - "Italiani in movimento. Ripensare l’emigrazione italiana in Argentina" di Elena Ambrosetti e Donatella Strangio.[7] - "Il colonialismo popolare, L'emigrazione e la tentazione espansionistica italiana in America latina" di Stefano Pelaggi.[8]
