In 1664, the British put an end to Dutch rule and gave its current name to New York. In the same year La Gazzetta di Mantova was born and, after 350 years of honorable service, it is now the most ancient newspaper in Italy. Paolo Boldrini is the editor in chief of La Gazzetta and carries on its glorious tradition while navigating through the challenges of new media and the internet. With him we’ll discuss the unique role and the prospective of ‘local’ media in the global age. Excerpts from Mr. Boldrini’s recent book Mille Lire a Colonna will also be read and discussed.
