Digging Italy: Doing Investigative Reporting in Italy
Doing investigative reporting in Italy can be dangerous and complex.

A fragile market for journalism, economical restraints and the weak protections offered to reporters also play a major part in complicating an already dysfunctional scenario. Definitely, digital technology has brought new opportunities and practices, but what’s the state of the art of Italian investigative reporting? How to produce and fund investigations and make the best out of the digital environment?
