History and profile

Il Piccolo was founded by Teodoro Mayer in 1881.[1] He was also the owner and editor-in-chief of the paper.[1] Mayer and other people who were instrumental in the establishment of the paper were right-wing pro-Italians.[1][2] Mayer supported the idea that Trieste was part of Italy.[1]

Il Piccolo ceased publication at the beginning of World War I.[1] In 1919 it was relaunched.[1] Until the end of World War II the paper was edited by those with fascist political leaning.[2]

Il Piccolo is based in Trieste[3] and it is published by Finegil Editoriale SPA[4] which has been a subsidiary of Gruppo Espresso since 1998.[5] Local editions for the towns of Monfalcone, Gorizia and Istria (Croatia) are also printed. It has a progressive political stance.[6]


The circulation of Il Piccolo was 40,231 copies in 2008.[7] The paper had a circulation of 31,302 copies in 2013.[8] The Espresso Group reported that the circulation of the paper was 28,800 copies in 2014.[3]
