The days of the Roberto Morrione Prize for investigative journalism are

back in Turin and online

from Wednesday 26 to Saturday 29 October .

18 appointments with the participation of 75 speakers, expert people from the world of journalism, university, communication and civil society.

The theme

The Amici di Roberto Morrione association has chosen as this year's theme "

WarNews. Information in war

." There will be

four days

of meetings, projections and debates to analyze the role of information in the current context, between wars, crises, known and forgotten conflicts. 

“We find ourselves today in the midst of an armed conflict in Europe that threatens nuclear disasters.

Talking about "Information in war" was an obligatory, almost obvious choice, but no less necessary for this.

We wanted to do this by calling all those involved to reflect, starting from the envoys, protagonists of the news from the battlefields, up to the students, the first generation, from the times of World War II, who find themselves dealing with the threat of a global conflict, which risks mortgaging their future ”explains

Giovanni Celsi

, president of the Amici di Roberto Morrione association.
