Our guidelines

The following are the basic criteria that informed our selection of articles:

  • We select articles principally from the major national online newspapers and magazines, i.e., Corriere.it, Repubblica.it, Il Sole 24 Ore.it, La Stampa.it, L’Espresso.it
  • We seek to highlight news that is current, but has a long lasting impact.
  • We opt for articles that report on social and cultural life in Italy but with a grin and a soft irony towards the Italian lifestyle.
  • Articles that focus on how the Italian language is changing make valuable contributions to language study.
  • Even with sacred topics like food, we favor those with a less stereotypical perspective.
  • Because we address an international audience we like to select articles capable of soliciting a cultural comparison.
  • We seek out articles that underscore Italian excellence and cutting edge in technology, science and environmental  protection.
