The newspaper with the most original name in Italy was founded way back in 1885. When cigars cost less than a “carlino”, that era’s local currency, the change from a cigar purchase was the extremely modest price of this publication. Originally created to offer an exhaustive view of the happenings around the world, the newspaper featured timely articles from the head press agencies in Paris, London and Vienna, with a particular focus on local events in Bologna.

From that point on, il Resto del Carlino has become synonymous with Bologna. The newspaper is a symbol of Bologna, interpreting and articulating the spirit of the city, through its prestigious writers: from Giovanni Pascoli to Gabriele D’Annunzio, from Giuseppe Prezzolini to Curzio Malaparte and Giovanni Spadolini. Today, with its numerous local news offices (15 in total) it goes well beyond the local confines, sweeping across three of the best regions of Italy in terms of “quality of life” – something long-affirmed by American universities – while at the same time spurring the economy.

Il Resto del Carlino is an undisputed leader in terms of readership and authority thanks to the detailed local information combined with the broad coverage of national and international news that it provides.

With more than a century of life, il Resto del Carlino is the model of a newspaper fully dedicated to its readers and to the interests of those in its area of distribution.
