The Gipsy problem in Romania is both an old and a new one. Its meaning can be grasped by understanding the circumstances which led to the emancipation of the Gypsies in the Principalities. Consisting of two phases, the emancipation process was a progressive one, manifesting itself almost identically in Moldavia and Walachia during the fifth and sixth decades of the nineteenth century. The press of the period offers information of great importance for understanding the process mentioned above, representing a true source of knowledge; the study which follows aims to appeal to this historical source in analyzing the last stage of the emancipation of the Gypsies, making use of the Moldavian press of the years 1855-1856.
