Abstract

The journals of Giovanni Lami and Angelo Calogerà are well known and studied. The private correspondence between the two scholars sheds new light on the cultural mediation work carried out by the two journalists with their journalistic enterprises. It was a complex mediation, not only between Italian Catholic and Transalpine Protestant culture, but also between pro-Jansenists and Jesuit supporters within a Catholic and Italian context. Lami and Calogerà in their journalistic activity found original solutions to support the authority of their newspapers. The use of the correspondence of two of the most important Italian eighteenth-century journalists allows us to better evaluate the line of their periodicals and to understand the reasons for some editorial choices. Calogerà’s position with regard to transalpine literature and periodicals, the subject of his first journalistic enterprises, is particularly interesting.
