Category: Edition 2016

It is 1 August 1865. Il Sole, a commercial and political newspaper, expression of the liberal bourgeoisie and innovator of the time, hits the newsstands with the belief that there can be no social development without economic development. Today, 150 years later, the newspaper has become the Sun System: a sophisticated multimedia system, unique in Europe and the United States, characterized by a chain of 12 vertical digital newspapers, a paywall site, a news&talk radio, a financial news agency, a leading Business School in Italy. The media outlet has decided to tell its story with a documentary film to celebrate its 150 years and has commissioned Giffoni Experience to realize it. The 'Sole 24 ore' has become a recognizable signature thanks to the quality of its information to the extent that the phrase "states the Sole 24 ore" is often quoted as 'the source' to mark the reliability and soundness of the information.
