History and profile
The paper was founded by Vittorio Bersezio, a journalist and novelist,
in February 1867 with the name Gazzetta Piemontese. 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. For criticising the 1924 murder of the
socialist Giacomo Matteotti, he was forced to resign and sell the
newspaper to Giovanni Agnelli. The financier
Riccardo Gualino also
took a share. The paper is now owned by GEDI Gruppo Editoriale
It has a centrist stance. The former contributors of La Stampa
include Italian novelist Alberto Moravia.
La Stampa, based in Turin, was published in broadsheet format
until November 2006 when the paper began to be published in the
berliner format. It launched a website in 1999. La
Stampa also launched a project, called Vatican Insider, run by the
daily newspaper and has among its staff several Vatican affairs
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.
In September 2012
La Stampa moved to its new headquarters in Turin,
leaving its historical editorial building. Mario Calabresi is the
editor-in-chief of the daily.
On 9 April 2013 an explosive device was sent by an anarchist group,
