dbo:abstract
  • Camilla Cederna (January 21, 1911 – November 9, 1997) was an Italian writer and editor. She is said to have introduced investigative journalism to the Italian news media. Some sources give her year of birth as 1921. She was born in Milan where she studied Classic Literature at the University of Milan. Cederna helped found the magazine L'Europeo in 1941. From 1958 to 1980, she was an editor and reporter for L'espresso; in 1980, she joined Panorama magazine as an editor and columnist. A 1943 article La moda nera ("Black fashion") about the clothes worn by women in the Italian Fascist movement led to her being put in prison. She is perhaps best known for her 1978 book Giovanni Leone: la carriera di un presidente, where she accused Italian president Giovanni Leone of being involved in a Lockheed bribery scandal; Leone was forced to resign but he later successfully sued Cederna for libel. She died of cancer in Rome in 1997. (en)
