Italy as seen by the others. Permanent observatory on the foreign press (1991)
This report was inspired by the need to understand, beyond ephemeral sensations, what image of Italy the foreign press offers and accredits to its readers. As Italy approaches the crucial year of 1993, the attention of many of our partners, often not particularly favourable, is focused on it.
This report analyses more than 500 articles published in March, April and May 1991 in the following foreign newspapers: Die Welt, Le Monde, Herald Tribune, Pravda, El Pais and The Times. The report is divided into two parts. The first is an analysis of the data and the frequency of mentions in the following contexts: politics, economy, crime, culture, sport and news. The second, made up of annexes, presents the news concerning Italy and building its image beyond its borders in a structured way.
