Summary/Abstract: The author, after a short presentation of the distinctive features and some definition problems associated with the main varieties of the Italian language, demonstrates (on selected examples from the Italian press), how the variation of modern neostandard Italian, based on a spoken language, permeates the language of the press and displaces traditional structures based on a written tradition. Through the use of new highly simplified structures the language of the press is more expressive. The author shows that these changes are occurring on many levels: morphological, syntactic, textual and with the creation of vocabulary also on a semantic level.
