Digging Italy: Doing investigative reporting in Italy

With Cecilia Anesi, Alberto Nerazzini, Philip Di Salvo, Juliana Ruhfus – In partnership with Logan Symposium

Talks & Presentations

Doing investigative jounalism in Italy is often complex and dangerous. Italian journalism has not developed an investigative culture comparable to the one of Anglo-Saxon world and, with the exception of some broadcasters and other actors, Italian media tend to underestimate investigative reportig and to produce little of it, also because to the difficult and fragile economic conditions of the field and the few protections and safeguards provided to journalists.

Digital has provided new tools and strategies: but what is the state of the art of Italian investigative journalism? And how is it possible to conduct investigations, have them funded and make the most out of the digital tools and practices?

We will talk about it with Cecilia Anesi (IrpiMedia), Alberto Nerazzini (journalist, DIG), Philip Di Salvo (researcher, DIG) and Juliana Ruhfus (Al Jazeera). The panel is organized in collaboration with the Logan Symposium and the Center for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) and will be held in English.
