behind this photograph is a decade-long story.
At 34, after 11 years of online journalism, we have decided that a new paper weekly will be born which, starting from mid-September, you will find on newsstands and bookstores throughout Italy (as well as digitally on the various stores).
The web is where we were born and where we will always remain anchored. But today the internet alone is no longer enough.
Hence the need to offer all of you something more: a weekly in-depth magazine called The Post Internazionale (TPI) that is able to decipher the present and interpret the future.
If there is something that these two years of pandemic have taught us it is the need to return to giving importance to slowness, not just chasing life by pursuing a model that in the end made us more fragile.
It goes without saying that the cut will be what has characterized our battles and our investigations. Which led us to win the Ischia International Journalism Award. And that has prompted tens of thousands of people to donate time and money to TPI.
After all, if you are reading these lines, if today our newspaper is still free and independent, it is thanks to those like you who have decided to support our newspaper. Allowing us to support the present and rethink the future.
And for this very reason we will use the funds that we have collected and set aside, thanks to your donations, to finance our new weekly magazine.
Without drawing on external lenders. And least of all from public funds. The publishing company is the same and still belongs entirely to us. For this we can say free, really.
This new enterprise of ours is the result of an unprecedented experimentation: because it comes from the bottom and because in fact it ensures that we are free even before leaving. TPI it just depends on you.
You will say: “But who makes you do it on the threshold of 2022 to come out with a magazine in a digital world? “.
It might seem like an initiative against the times. But it isn’t.
In chaos of this era we feel the need for some points of reference able to clarify and provide everyone with the tools to get an idea. Your own.
Well, so what?
All this has led us to integrate our information offer in a digital + paper combo with the 1/7 formula already strongly in vogue elsewhere in the world.
From Monday to Friday, in the inevitable speed of the times, we serve the public on our site which will remain free with news, surveys, interviews, comments and enriched with new podcasts and graphic videos.
At the weekend we will be on newsstands, every Friday, to invite you to stop time and return to slowly reading unpublished content of in-depth analysis, investigation, scenario. Out of the box.
On our new weekly we will try to do journalism in the public interest. Never submitted to power. Always in the name of freedom. As we have done on our site for 10 years.
In today’s editorial flattening we want to be an alternative voice for millions of Italians who do not have a voice and representation.
You will find the names of investigative journalists who have been doing this job with a straight back for over thirty years, without ever bending over.
You will find unpublished stories often under trace from Italy and the world; portraits, readings and cultural insights on the great debates that rarely find space today.
And you will also find great brands including Alexander Stille, Valerio Magrelli, Marco Revelli, Claudio Sabelli Fioretti, Pietrangelo Buttafuoco.
But also Luca Telese, Riccardo Bocca, Selvaggia Lucarelli, Stefano Mentana, Giulio Cavalli, Emanuele Manolo Fucecchi, Alessandro Di Battista, Roberto Corradi.
And then, among other collaborators, Insaf Dimassi, Marco Antonellis, Elisa Serafini, Francesca Pizzolante.
For now I stop and add nothing else. We are almost there…
Thank you very much for everything.
See you soon for those who want …
By the way, if it is true that it takes courage today to print a new newspaper, know that we are brave enough to come out on newsstands for the first time. Friday 17th September.
Always against the tide: TPI it depends only on you. Support independent journalism by pre-subscribing to our new weekly
