Aspen Institute Italia’s work takes place behind closed doors and any media representatives attending do so in a strictly personal capacity. For certain specific conferences the Institute organizes meetings with the press to acquaint the national and international media with the analyses and proposals that have emerged in the course of the event. On other occasions the Institute grants exclusive coverage to national TV networks and press sources. The magazine’s main themes are also debated and analyzed in the course of meetings held by invitation and open to the media, known as the “Aspenia Talks”.
