Our Future-Oriented History

L'Eco della Stampa’s goal has always been to work in partnership with its customers to keep track of what is being written about them, a difficult daily task.

The idea of dividing press clippings by items of interest originated at a newsagent’s in Paris back in 1879. A few years later, in 1901, Ignazio Frugiuele understood the potentials of this business and founded L’Eco della Stampa in Rome.

Over the years the role of press clipping services has become increasingly important in several areas, for journalists and press offices,for communication agencies and marketing, in Italy and internationally.

In 1904 the company moved to Milan. Offices have also been opened in Rome and Genoa to monitor local media.

Efforts and investments were made over the years to:

  • Increase media coverage, especially with regard to newspapers;
  • Use skilled personnel to manage data collection quality and complex processing;
  • Ensure operations 365 days a year, on a continuous basis, including at night, so that press clippings can be delivered early in the morning.

Between the 80s and 90s L'Eco della Stampa was the first company in Italy to extend monitoring to radio/TV channels through its Ecovideo division.

Although new players appeared on the market, its leading role was confirmed on the eve of 2000. Among several innovations, the company set up the EcoAnalysis Division to provide customers with qualitative/quantitative analyses on activities and investment regarding marketing and communication.

The company is currently working to increase source indexing and information storage, from web monitoring (the most extensive on the market), to expansion of radio and TV sources associated to digital development, to social media and new forms of digital communication, willing to apply its skills to monitor new networks.
