Many things are changing in journalism, in newspapers, and even among readers: it’s an intense and critical period for Italian and global information, caught between a role that has never been so precious for the functioning and growth of democracies and a beginning of the century that has disrupted its economic sustainability. Understanding how to truly “read” newspapers, the rules and mechanisms on which the choices and decisions of those who create them are based, is valuable for understanding what is happening around us and how it is being told. How are newspapers funded? Who are the people who make them? What language do they speak? How does one become a “journalist”? What is happening to the most famous Italian and foreign newspapers? How do you read an interview? How are sales figures measured? What should we think when we see a text in quotation marks in a newspaper? And why is anger the most commonly used emotion in headlines? Can we remain on the surface of the reported facts, or can we become more discerning and informed readers about the fascinating and central world of news and those who produce it?
