Department of Information and Publishing
The Department of Information and Publishing Support is directly supporting the press.
In recent months the department has created a section dedicated to ongoing calls that could affect both newspaper publishers and periodicals.
There are currently three calls dedicated to publishers:
1 - Contributions to publishing companies of Italian newspapers distributed abroad
