GEDI Gruppo Editoriale S.p.A., formerly known as Gruppo Editoriale L'Espresso S.p.A., is an Italian media conglomerate. Founded in 1955, it is based in Turin, Italy.


In 2009, the group L'Espresso created an online advertising consortium with RCS MediaGroup.[1]

In March 2016, the Italiana Editrice (ITEDI, group La Stampa) merged with L'Espresso group to create the leading Italian group in print and online information.[2]

In May 2017, the group changed its names from Gruppo Editoriale L'Espresso to GEDI Gruppo Editoriale. In 2020 EXOR, the company of the Agnelli-family took over GEDI Gruppo Editoriale and became the controlling owner.[3]


Formerly owned


In December 2019, the board of GEDI accepted Exor's offer to buy 43.78% of its stocks.[4][5]

As of 2020, GEDI is 100% controlled by Giano Holding Spa, which is in turn controlled by Exor, the holding company of the Agnelli family. After Giano bought all shares of GEDI, the company was delisted from the Borsa Italiana; Compagnie Industriali Riunite and Mercurio Spa also own a minority share in Giano, 5% each.[6][7]
