La Stampa

Turin, Italy

La Stampa (The Press) is one of the best-known, most influential and most widely sold Italian daily newspapers. Published in Turin, it is distributed in Italy and other European nations. The publication is owned by Fiat SpA.

It was founded in 1867 with the name Gazzetta Piemontese. In 1895 the newspaper was bought (and by then edited) by Alfredo Frassati, who gave it its current name and a national perspective. He was forced to resign and sell the newspaper to Giovanni Agnelli for criticising the 1924 murder of the socialist Giacomo Matteotti.
