Corriere Della Sera
Corriere della Sera is an Italian daily newspaper (first in sales), published in Milan.
It is among the oldest and most reputable Italian newspapers, founded on Sunday, March 5, 1876 by Eugenio Torelli Viollier. In the 1910s and 1920s, under the direction of Luigi Albertini, the Corriere became the most widely read newspaper in Italy, maintaining its importance and influence to this day. Its main rivals are Turin's La Stampa and Rome's La Repubblica.
The newspaper's offices have been in the same buildings since the beginning of the 20th century, and therefore it is popularly known as "the Via Solferino newspaper", for the name of the street where it is still located. As the name indicates, it was originally printed in the evening (sera).
