The Corriere della Sera (Italian pronunciation: [korˈrjɛre ˈdella ˈsera]; English: Evening Courier) is an Italian daily newspaper published in Milan, with an average daily circulation of 800,000 copies.2
In 2004, Corriere della Sera launched an online English section focusing on Italian current affairs and culture. In total, its website is among the most visited Italian language news websites, attracting over 1.6 million readers everyday.4
Corriere della Sera was founded on Sunday 5 March 1876 by Eugenio Torelli Viollier.2 In the 1910s and 1920s, under the direction of Luigi Albertini, it became the most widely read newspaper in Italy, maintaining its importance and influence into the present century.2
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 an evening paper.
The Italian novelist Dino Buzzati was a journalist at the Corriere, as were many other leading Italian writers and intellectuals, including Eugenio Montale, Italo Calvino, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Oriana Fallaci and Indro Montanelli. The "third page" (a page once entirely dedicated to culture, in the Italian tradition) contained a main article, named elzeviro, which has been signed by all the editors and the major novelists, poets and journalists of the country.
In the 1960s the Corriere became part of the Rizzoli group, listed in the Italian stock exchange. Its main shareholders are Mediobanca, the Fiat group and some of the biggest industrial and financial groups in Italy.
In 1981 the newspaper was involved in the P2 scandal; the secret Italian Freemason lodge had the newspaper's editor Franco Di Bella and the former owner Angelo Rizzoli on its member lists. The daily's 2010 circulation was 664,000.5
