Television also plays a central role in Italian life: many households have the TV switched on from morning to night, regardless of the poor quality of Italy’s numerous local and national channels. Newspapers 42 Tuscany’s major newspaper is the Florencebased La Nazione. This is technically a national paper but its sales are concentrated in the central provinces of Italy.
