Il Fatto Quotidiano is an Italian daily newspaper owned founded in 2009 and with its headquarters in Rome. The title Il Fatto Quotidiano was chosen as a homage to journalist Enzo Biagi, who was dismissed from state television RAI at prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's request, and whose hugely successful daily ten-minute prime-time news commentary on Rai Uno, named Il Fatto, was removed from programming.
Since its launch, the publisher stated he would not use the Italian state advertising and funding to run the newspaper, but instead he would use only money from sales and market advertisements. In 2010 it had a circulation of 113,000 printed copies.
