ANSA (Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata), is the leading wire service in Italy, and one of the leaders among world news agencies. ANSA is a not-for-profit cooperative, whose members and owners are 36 leading news organizations in Italy. Its mission is the distribution of fair and objective news reporting.


ANSA was founded on 15 January 1945, and it is based in Rome. The following is a list of the editor-in-chiefs ANSA has had in its history:


ANSA covers national and international events through its 22 offices in Italy, and its presence in more than 80 cities in 74 countries in the world. More than 2,000 news items are distributed every day by ANSA, together with more than 700 photos and several videos. ANSA multimedia production is distributed on all the digital platforms (web, TV, satellite, cellphones), using cutting edge technologies. Among the more than 1,400 customers of ANSA productions, there are media companies, corporate firms, and the government.

In addition to its primary news website at, ANSA has a news website at (where 'med' is short for Mediterranean) which covers the current affairs of all the countries of the Mediterranean Basin. "The ANSAmed package consists of a news stream of about 200 stories and reports per day, in English, Italian and Arabic languages. The news covers Euro-Mediterranean and Middle Eastern political news, and economic and business reports from the area."[1]

Recent events

On 11 February 2013, ANSA scooped media outlets throughout the world with its coverage of Pope Benedict XVI's resignation, due to correspondent Giovanna Chirri's fluency in Latin, which enabled her to instantly translate the news when it was first announced.[2][3]

On August 26, 2014 was signed a five-year partnership agreement (2015-2020) between AP and ANSA for text, images and video.
