History and profile
Giornale di Sicilia was founded in 1860, immediately following the Expedition of the Thousand headed by Giuseppe Garibaldi; it was first published on 7 June of that year under the name "Giornale Officiale di Sicilia" with Girolamo Ardizzone as its first editor-in-chief.
The paper played a significant role in nationalizing the Italian rural women in Sicily at the beginning of the 1900s.
It is published in ten different local versions, one for each province of Sicily plus another one for the city of Palermo.
