International Journalism Festival 2012


The 6th edition of the International Journalism Festival, open to journalists from all over the world, will be held in Perugia, Italy from 25-29 April.

Festival venues, located in the historic buildings of the city’s medieval downtown zone, will host over 200 events and more than 450 guest speakers, who will gather to discuss journalism, current events and issues pertaining to the world of information.

Founded in 2006, the purpose of the Festival is to speak about the role of the media in society, freedom of the press and democracy in an informal and accessible way. An event that was born from the “grass roots,” it is open to the public and provides a setting in which information protagonists and consumers can engage in a dynamic dialogue and comparison of ideas.
