Italian newspapers, like their American cousins, are still the biggest source of news for the vast majority of Italians, according to a new survey.
The survey by the news organization Italiano Della Bella found that just 7 percent of Italians read their newspapers on a daily basis, compared to more than 80 percent of Americans.
And only 22 percent of Italian citizens read newspapers at least once a week, compared with nearly 60 percent of American citizens.
The study is the latest to show the gulf between the two cultures.
In the past, Italians have been more inclined to read news online and to read about current events on social media than Americans.
But the survey found that this has changed in recent years.
Italian newspapers are more likely to cover political, economic and social news than are American ones.
The survey found, for instance, that Italians are more apt to read stories about crime or crime prevention than are Americans.
In an interview with the newspaper La Repubblica, the head of the news agency, Luigi Barone, said the survey shows that Italians have become more inclined toward reading their newspapers online, while Americans are not.
But while the two countries share a lot of the same media, Barone said he’s not convinced that the two communities are particularly close in terms of news consumption.
Barone pointed out that there are more than 300 Italian newspapers in America, whereas there are just four in Italy.
He also said that Italians also read more newspaper photos, video and other digital content than Americans do.
In a similar vein, the Italian government has been working on a digital news portal, La Republica Digital, which will offer news and news-related content directly to Italians.
La Repubblia Digital is part of the Italian Digital Media Alliance, a consortium of companies that together provide digital media services for both sides of the Atlantic.
The consortium also includes Google, Facebook, YouTube and Netflix.
The consortium aims to make news more accessible, and Barone acknowledged that the partnership is a start.
He said that the digital news platform will continue to evolve and that it’s up to the Italian and American news media to take the next steps.
But he warned that it might not be a short-term solution.
The new survey found about two-thirds of Italians still have not read newspapers for more than five years.
In the U.S., that number was just over three-quarters, according the Pew Research Center.
The Pew report also found that Americans’ trust in their newspapers has been rising for years, but has dipped slightly in recent months.
It found that only about one-third of Americans trust their local newspapers to tell the truth.
