Adnkronos is an Italian news agency.[1]

History and profile

Adnkronos was established in 1963 by a merger of two agencies, Kronos (founded in 1951) and Agenzia Di Notizie (founded in 1959).[2] The agency is based in Rome.[3]

Adnkronos is owned by Giuseppe Marra Communications. Its editor-in-chief is Giuseppe Marra.[4]

The agency was expanded to include Adnkronos Salute which is a health agency.[4] In 2003, the agency established its International office, Adnkronos International, which provides news and reports in Arabic and English, mainly from the Arab world.[2]

In July 2014, Adnkronos International signed an agreement with Iran's official news agency, IRNA, to promote bilateral news cooperation.[2]

The Italian edition of the World Almanac, Il libro dei fatti, is being published by the agency.[2]
