The weekly newspaper Riforma is the result of a process of cooperation with the Italian Baptist churches, begun with an pact of mutual acknowledgment and signed in 1990. The need for a joint text for the Baptist, Methodist and Waldensian churches was voted and approved firstly by the Synod and later by the Assembly and Synod of the three denominations in a united session. In 1993 the new weekly took the place of La Luce (The Light), including in its inside pages the historical L’Eco delle Valli Valdesi (Echoes from the Waldensian Valleys), which had been founded in 1848.
The editorial staff of Riforma has its central office in Turin, while the regional office for the centre and south of Italy is in Naples. The editorial group for "L’Eco delle Valli Valdese" meets in Pinerolo.
Each week Riforma deals with topical issues from a Protestant point of view as well as specific subjects and arguments concerning the life of the Protestant churches in Italy.
Special attention is given in its pages to the Bible and theology.
