SpaItalia Conditions for press accreditation

Press accreditation is granted on the basis of a number of very strict criteria.

Press accreditation is only granted to journalists who have been commissioned by a media and who derive income from this activity. This applies to all print journalists (including those working for online media), radio and television journalists, film crews and press photographers.

This accreditation is a tool enabling them to carry out their work in a professional manner. Under no circumstances is it free admission.

CONDITIONS

  • By definition, holders of an official press card have access to the pass. 
  • Journalists who do not have an official press card, but who submit a request and have a mandate from a media organisation, are accredited under certain conditions:

    • Digital media active in the motor sports sector and able to demonstrate a sufficient number* of visitors/readers/subscribers – statistics must be provided.
