“Clarity on Stamina” starts-off
15 January 2014

Clarity on Stamina (Chiarezza su Stamina) is a journalism project funded by readers, of which Zadig will be the publisher.

Two journalists - Roberta Villa and Antonino Michienzi – will try clarifying the obscure points of the story through an enquiry that will be published as free e-book on the main stores and, in printable version, on the dedicated webpage of Scienzainrete (http://www.scienzainrete.it/stamina-facciamo-chiarezza), promoter of the initiative.

This innovative cofounding project - with few precedents in Italy - will address the public request of clarity: Zadig will cover the production and dissemination costs, whilst.
The crowd-funding resources will be used as compensation for the journalists. As proposed by Zadig, this project will be the occasion for commemorating Romeo Bassoli, partner of Zadig in the past and scientific journalist recently disappeared. Until the end, Romeo valued a rational and constantly critic attitude, especially when facing death, without ever losing his humanity. We therefore think he will have approved the new attempt for supporting investigative journalism, nowadays extremely difficult in Italy because of the publishing market situation.

For contributing to the project, click here (http://www.kapipal.com/chiarezzasustamina).

If the set amount will not be reached and the appointed journalist will not be able to dedicate all the needed time to this project, Scienzainrete will publish all the collected material anyway. If, on the contrary, the amount will be exceeded, the surplus will be used for disseminating and promoting the e-book (by means of presentation events, printing copies for patient associations and updating the Stamina case).

All phases of the project will be documented with the highest transparency.
