On-line since 2003
Born as a pilot project, an experiment, it has been greatly developed and it is now considered as a real daily paper. Even though regulations about the matter for those who operate in internet are still quite uncertain, Vaccari srl has decided to register it by the Law Court of Modena, on 4 December 2007. Editor is the journalist Fabio Bonacina, who has been coordinating the service since its birth.
For his job and his constant enthusiasm in favour of collecting, he has received the yearly award for journalism in 2006 by Riccione and in 2010 by the Italian Philatelic Press Union.

Revolutionizing the rhythms of philately, proposing real time information and utilizing the modern systems of communication, that is internet and the e-mail. This is, in brief, the approach of «Vaccari news».
«Even philately -Paolo Vaccari, chairman of the company, explains- can and has to keep up the pace of times, offering an updated service. With “Vaccari news”, we intend to follow this way, proposing fresh, up-to-date and exact information.»
«It was a sort of bet. When we started -the publishing director Valeria Vaccari explains- we did not have any example to follow, neither in Italy nor abroad. The few specialised services of this kind generally offered weekly updating. We wanted to inform our readers every day. And this is what we have been doing; we have never stopped, not even on Sundays or during the closing periods of the company. “Vaccari news” never goes on holiday!»

The App and social networks

«Certainly, we do not enter into competition with the traditional periodical publications, which have the possibility to develop and examine closely every single piece of news. “Vaccari news” can represent a further source from where to obtain information.»
