About Riccardo Stagliano'
STAGLIANO', RICCARDO is a reporter at il Venerdì, the 500,000-circulation weekly magazine of la Repubblica, the leading italian newspaper. His assignments can be very diverse, ranging from a story about the Immortality Institute in Wisconsin, which explores the “indefinite extension of life,” to another on the very dangerous routine of being a journalist in Ciudad Juárez. He runs a blog on Repubblica.it, where he usually posts multimedia companions to his reportages. A teacher of New Media at the Third University of Rome for ten years, Stagliano' is also the author of several books. His latest one, “Thanks: On why, without the immigrants, we would be lost,” assesses the essential economic contributions of foreign workers in Italy. He enjoys reading, watching movies and listening to music (he also plays guitar).

Digital media stories published elsewhere by Riccardo Stagliano':
- Argentina, 10 years after the default.

- Inside Occupy Wall Street 
Five days inside the movement which is changing american politics
- CELLPHONES SCARE 
Science is still divided about the consequences of cellphones on our brains. There are two main studies, the international Interphone and those made by the swedish professor Lennart Hardell. The first one, at first sight, seems to deny a link. The second one accuses them, after 10 years of usage, of doubling the risk of developing a brain tumor. On May 31, 2011, Iarc, the specialized agency of the World Health Organization, has reversed his course by including cellphone radiations among "possible carcinogens" (group 2B)
- Operation Geronimo 
Interactive chronicle of the last few hours of life of Osama Bin Laden
- Lampedusa, gateway to Europe 
Thousands of people from Tunisia are fleeing from their country. They don't believe that the revolution will bring soon a better future. And they risk their life sailing towards Italy, to enter Europe for a better life. Hundreds of people everyday land in Lampedusa, a tiny island, south of Sicily. There's already a humanitarian crisis but, in spite of the fearmongering that some members of the Berlusconi government spread, ordinary people of Lampedusa react very well to the so-called "invasion". As this webdocumentary tries to demonstrate.
- Inside Al Jazeera 
For weeks now the qatari tv has been telling the world about the protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya. They have also been accused, in a way, to instigate them. But its journalists, starting from a twenty-something whiz-kid who knows everything about Facebook and Twitter, rebut: "We're simply the best at covering them"
