History and profile

Il Tempo was founded in Rome by Renato Angiolillo in 1944.[1][2] At the initial phase the newspaper was a conservative publication and had an anti-communist stance.[1] The paper publishes the Rome edition (available nationally) and other five local editions (Latina, Frosinone, Northern Lazio, Abruzzo and Molise).

In 1996 the former owner, Caltagirone Editore, sold the newspaper to the Italian builder Domenico Bonifaci. On 4 October 2007 the paper switched from broadsheet format to Berliner.[2] Domenico Fisichella, an Italian academic and politician, is among the contributors of the daily.[3]

The 2008 circulation of Il Tempo was 50,651 copies.[4]
