History and profile[edit] The paper was founded by Vittorio Bersezio, a journalist and novelist, in February 1867[1][2] with the name Gazzetta Piemontese.[3] In 1895, the newspaper was bought (and by then edited) by Alfredo Frassati (father of Pier Giorgio Frassati), who gave it its current name and a national perspective.[3] For criticising the 1924 murder of the socialist Giacomo Matteotti, he was forced to resign and sell the newspaper to Giovanni Agnelli.[3] The financier Riccardo Gualino

also took a share.[4] The paper is now owned by GEDI Gruppo Editoriale[5] It has a centrist stance.[6] The former contributors of La Stampa include Italian novelist Alberto Moravia.[7] La Stampa, based in Turin,[8] was published in broadsheet format[9] until November 2006 when the paper began to be published in the berliner format.[10][11][12] It launched a website in 1999.[2] La Stampa also launched a project, called Vatican Insider, run by the daily newspaper and has among its staff several Vatican affairs analysts.[13] Since 26 May 2006 it has published a monthly magazine: Specchio+. From 26 January 1996 to 7 April 2006, it was called Specchio, which was published as a weekly supplement, a general interest magazine.[14] In September 2012 La Stampa
