Daily newspaper


Avvenire is oriented on the teachings of the Catholic Church but independent of the Church hierarchy. It frequently represents the views of the bishops' conference. It mainly takes a stance on moral issues and, in the Catholic spirit, also aims to reach atheist readers. Ever since the Berlusconi newspaper Il Giornale led a smear campaign in 2009 against Dino Boffo, chief editor of Avvenire at the time, smear campaigns have been referred to in Italy as the "Boffo method".
