Support ilfattoquotidiano.it: never like now we need you.
In these pandemic weeks we journalists, if we do our job with conscience, we do a public service. This is also why we are proud every day here at ilfattoquotidiano.it to offer hundreds of new content for free to all citizens: news, exclusive insights, expert interviews, surveys, videos and much more. All this work, however, has a great economic cost. Advertising, in a time when the economy is stagnant, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the access boom. This is why I ask those who read these lines to support us. To give us a minimum contribution, equal to the price of a cappuccino per week, fundamental for our work.

THANK YOU FOR READING ALREADY XX ITEMS THIS MONTH.
But now we are the ones who need you. Because our work has a cost. We are proud to be able to offer hundreds of new content every day for free to all citizens. But advertising, in a time when the economy is stagnant, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the boom in access to ilfattoquotidiano.it. For this reason I ask you to support us, with a minimum contribution, equal to the price of a cappuccino per week. A small but fundamental sum for our work. Help us out! Become a supporting user!
