There will also be a number of new faces fronting the more

Multimedia and technology are the two fundamental elements of
a new all news offer characterised by an innovative touch
screen in the studio, a cutting edge operational centre and a
unique editorial system for Italy called Dalet, a
sophisticated integrated software system used by the most
modern international networks.
