La Stampa's (Italy) coverage of the 1930 World Cup

While the vast majority of the European press took little interest in the first World Cup, publishing just a few lines on the events taking place in Uruguay, there were exceptions. Turin based daily journal La Stampa, regularly kept its readers informed. It didn't send a correspondent but relied on cablegram dispatches, listing the Buenos Aries based Agencia Americana (A.A.) in some of its reports.
