The main Italian dailies are La Repubblica and Il Corriere della Sera. Other important daily newspapers are linked to particular cities, for example La Stampa (Turin), La Nazione (Florence), Il Messaggero (Rome), Il Mattino (Naples), while some are openly ideological, such as Il Manifesto (left-wing), L'Avvenire (Catholic) or Il Giornale (conservative). The daily financial paper is il Sole 24 ore. Italian daily papers have, for some years, published weekly colour supplements on travel, health, showbusiness, fashion, etc and offer “packages” with books, music CDs, DVDs or videos at a good price.
