il Giornale is an Italian daily newspaper published in Milan, Italy.

History and profile

The newspaper was founded in 1972 by the journalist Indro Montanelli, together with the colleagues Enzo Bettiza, Ferenc Fejtő, Raymond Aron and others, after some disagreements with the new pro-Left-wing politics editorial line adopted by the newspaper Corriere della Sera, where Montanelli had been one of the most important contributors.

The newspaper was launched on 25 June 1974[1][2] as Il Giornale Nuovo, with Indro Montanelli as editor and member of the publishing company board of directors and an editorial office composed of 59 journalists.

In 1977 Montanelli, in financial difficulties, accepted an offer by Silvio Berlusconi, who thus became the publisher. When Berlusconi entered politics in December 1993, however, Montanelli left fearing for his own independence, and went on to found the short-lived daily newspaper La Voce.[3]

In 1994, Berlusconi left the role of publisher of il Giornale to his brother Paolo. Vittorio Feltri replaced Indro Montanelli as editor.

In May 2005 Il Giornale started its online version.[1]

In 2008 the paper had a circulation of 192,667 copies.[4]

Il Giornale della Libertà

Il Giornale della Libertà was a free weekly political, headed by Michela Vittoria Brambilla, and attached with Il Giornale, but was strictly criticized by the editorial staff and later went on strike (for the second time after the leaving of Indro Montanelli).[5]

The last issue is still available for downloading.[6]
