Day of Design: 20 Years of Newspaper Design
la Repubblica (The Republic) is, as of 2011, the largest circulation Italian daily general-interest newspaper. It was founded in 1976 in Rome by Gruppo Editoriale L’Espresso led by Eugenio Scalfari and Carlo Caracciolo and Arnoldo Mondadori Editore. Born as a radical/socialist newspaper, it has since kept a centre-left political stance.
Today the newspaper is regarded as on the moderate left wing of the political spectrum, although it has never failed to criticise politicians or parties with similar views. This includes, among other things, the so-called “moral problem” of Italian politics (first mentioned by Italian politician Enrico Berlinguer) and the fragmentation of left-wing political forces.
