  13. mostly because of POV and poor English ("the only independent journalistic TV program in Italy"), could be reinstated if someone is willing to write a meaningful phrase about it.

I'm still free. Why? :D Please arrest me! :D --2.40.51.128 (talk) 22:16, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
Big big problem. Censorship in Italy does not work. I am Italian and I am still free to speak and to write, from Italy, here and elsewhere that Berlusconi is a shit. We have a big big problem. Please help us... I WANT TO BE ARRESTED!--2.40.61.30 (talk) 16:25, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Italy freedom of speech ranking - citation needed[edit]

RSF, a non-profit organization. There is also a documentary on Italian TV system, which reports that Italy is ranked 77th in the world freedom of speech ranking (made by UN, I guess) Dproduzioni (talk) 11:46, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Can anti-defamation actions be considered censorship?[edit]

The following sub-section was deleted at 10:49 on 2 June 2011 by Tia solzago with the comment "Anti-defamation actions can't be considered censorship".

=== Anti-defamation actions ===
Several Italian politicians have promoted anti-defamation actions against journalist in 2004; in February of the same year, the journalist Massimiliano Melilli was sentenced to 18 months in prison and a 100,000 euros fine. But in the same year, also a politician, was arrested because of "defamation through the press" ("diffamazione a mezzo stampa"): was the case of it:Lino Jannuzzi, a senator of Berlusconi's party Forza Italia, who was found guilty of publishing an article where he claimed the existence of a secret international summit with judges and politicians plotting to have Silvio Berlusconi arrested. Jannuzzi, who confessed making the whole story up, was sentenced to a 2 years and 4 months of prison, but soon he received a Pardon ("Grazia") from the Italian Republic President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi.

I wonder if the sub-section should be restored? Anti-defamation actions against the press or others that result in or have the potential to result in prison sentences and/or large fines can certainly be used to intimidate and encourage self-censorship. In any case it would certainly be good if there were some citations associated with this text. Jeff Ogden (talk) 16:02, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I found this in the Reporters Without Boarders "Press Freedom Barometer 2011 for Italy" (http://en.rsf.org/report-italy,111.html): "Defamation remains a crime and the right of access to public or private information is not in practice respected." So RWB at least has concerns about anti-defamation and Freedom of the Press. Jeff Ogden (talk) 16:29, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I restored an expanded "Anti-defamation actions" section, added several refs, and changed the substance of the information on Lino Jannuzzi to match the citations I found (I found nothing about his confession or the "secret international summit").

Voice totally fucked up...[edit]

There are sections about the modern Italy first, then after sections about Fascist Italy WITHOUT any explanation of the change of historical dateline... --188.153.63.4 (talk) 00:24, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Li chiamarono... briganti![edit]

Who censored what? Crap! Anyway the film was published in DVD http://www.dvd-store.it/DVD/DVD-Video/ID-34853/Li-chiamarono-briganti.aspx

Please improve this entire voice, it is ridicolous.--TheDRaKKaR (talk) 05:59, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. It pictures Italy like if it were North Korea. Also, not so coherent. Half of the page is dedicated to say that newspapers are politically oriented, but then only links from "La Repubblica" are displayed in order to justify the behavior of some people. Quite a good example of POV. --TheLazza (talk) 13:48, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Pisanu Law — outdated information[edit]

The so-called Pisanu law, which made it hard to open wi-fi hotspots (but not impossible) has been abolished in 2011: http://daily.wired.it/news/politica/wi-fi-libero-tutti.html

As a side note... Starting from when, blocking child-pornography is considered censorship? o.O That's not censorship, it's a basic crime-fighting measure which is considered a de-facto standard in every part of the world. --TheLazza (talk) 13:44, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
