Periodical free press: hope or despair?

What’s happening with the periodical free press in Italy? Is it still a sustainable form of journalism? Does it offer avenues for development in the future? Or will it be hosed off the streets by the current economic uncertainties? Does it fall into the standard print media category, hence largely impotent in the face of the shift in ad revenues to the web, or is it a case apart, capable of resisting broader market trends? And what might the consequences be of further customisation to local needs – both in commercial and journalistic credibility terms?

Workshops are free entry but registration is required. Each workshop will have a limited number of participants. The workshop registration form will be put on the website soon. Workshop registration will begin on 15 March 2012.
