The newspaper arose in 1968 from a merger between two Catholic papers: the Milan paper L’Italia and the Avvenire d’Italia from Bologna. The paper is oriented towards the teachings of the Catholic Church but independent of the Church hierarchy, and often reflects the views of the bishops' conference. It takes its own stance above all on ethical issues and inspired by Catholicism also aims to address atheists.
