The Roman Observer (in Italian L'Osservatore Romano) is now online --and free till August.
The miracle of a significant web presence is due to the leadership of the paper's editor Mr. Vian.
Independently founded in 1861 to defend the papal states against Garibaldi political expediencies in a new political era of "unified" Italy. Pope Leo XIII bought the newspaper in 1885. LO is a semi-official news outlet.
