12 years have passed since a group of friends decided to embark on this adventure: carve out a small space in the world of information and dedicate it entirely to our small and beloved homeland.
Today it looks like a successful experiment, thanks to the work of all those who believed in our project and who collaborated with us throughout the growth process.
Before they told us and often highlighting only the negative sides, now we tell ourselves without exaltation and without complexes. The context in which we were born was not easy. Albanians lived their days surrounded by the shadows of racism and prejudice, a context in which the media were often complicit.
Even the voices of the Italians who visited Albania and saw a different reality did not find echo in the newspapers. Hence the need for have their own information body, to give voice to our compatriots and highlight ancient traditions and the best values of our people.
Since its inception, the newspaper has made use of a network of contacts and correspondents from the Albanian community residing in Italy, the numerous Italian lovers of Albania who worked in the most disparate sectors of civil life and finally journalists, academics, Albanian students, who they had had contact with Italy or had been in our country for their studies.
In recent years we have also tried to give voice to the Albanian associations which, like us, are committed every day to transmitting and conserving our best traditions and values, advertising cultural events, civil and social campaigns.
Today we can say that Albania News It is the main point of reference for new Italians of Albanian origin, a digital place where you can deepen your knowledge of your roots and also discover the Italian-Albanian cultural activities, thanks to the networking and mapping work of the associations, carried out by involving numerous collaborators throughout Italy .
On this occasion we also want to thank thousands of readers who follow our newspaper every day.
