It represents an authentic school of journalistic thought dedicated to providing the highest level of information and service to the reader.Accomplished writers from Edmondo De Amicis to Carlo Lorenzini, and from Giovanni Spadolini and Giuseppe Prezzolini, to the poet Mario Luz have all graced La Nazione’s pages.
A high-quality newspaper, which everyday reaches readers in a vast area ranging from La Spezia to Umbria, not to mention, of course, its historical, moral and artistic capital: Florence.
