La Stampa is one of Italy’s most influential newspapers. It is based in Turin and it was established in 1868 as the Gazetta Piemontese and became an important voice in Italy’s struggle for liberation and unification. The Gazetta was purchased in 1895 by two of its editors, Luigi Roux and Alfred Frassati, who changed the paper’s name to La Stampa. In 2012 it had a circulation of 256,203 copies.
