    5.0 out of 5 stars Ricordo di Roma! (Souvenir of Rome) February 9, 2006
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    La Settimana Enigmistica has to be the world's best puzzle magazine. When I lived in Rome, I bought it every week at the local kiosk. It is full not only of crosswords, but also of intricate puzzles, such as anagrams, monoverbs, changes of vowels or consonants, cryptograms, and other brain teasers--all in Italian. It also has cartoons. The puzzles begin easy, and become harder later in the book.

    My favorites are the rebuses, fascinating picture puzzles that depict one thing and, when solved, state something completely different. For instance, a dog barking (latra), the letters GI, two beavers (castori), the letters ADA, and blackberries on a bush (more) translate to "La Tragica Storia d'Amore"--or The Tragic Story of Love. The editors give you the numbers of letters in each word as an aid (e.g., in this puzzle, 2, 7, 6, 1, 5). At any rate, they are great fun.

    La Settimana Enigmistica--The Weekly Puzzler--is wildly popular in Italy among all sorts of people. For instance, one cannot get on a bus or a train without seeing business men, college students, well-dressed women, and just plain folks, pencil in hand, working out the puzzles. You will see copies of the magazine on the front seats of taxis; the drivers solve the puzzles between fares. If you are on a long train ride, La Settimana Enigmistica represents a good conversation opener. Someone is always on hand to give you a hint, for instance, about la parola giusta that will help solve the puzzle.

    For anyone who wants to achieve proficiency in Italian, La Settimana Enigmistica is just the thing. But beware, it is addictive!

    If only it weren't so expensive! (Fortunately I have a large stash left over from the 1980's and 1990's, which ease any enigmistic cravings I might still have.)

    3.0 out of 5 stars The big problem is delivery August 19, 2005
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    The magazine itself is the classic Italian puzzle magazine, but the delivery to the U.S. is unreliable--it runs routinely 2 weeks behind, and can go as much as a month before two or three issues show up together.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic magazine, poor delivery July 17, 2012
    By VicFC
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    My husband used to be addicted to La Settimana Enigmistica however now that he's in the US it isn't as easy to find. The subscription through amazon did not have regular delivery. Instead of 52 weeks of delivery we received 52 issues randomly delivered throughout the year. Sometimes three in one week and others none. The premium charge for the magazine should warrant a more regular delivery schedule.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine! July 21, 2005
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I got hooked on this magazine while living in Italy - I'd buy it every week without fail! Good crosswords, comics and brainteasers will keep you occupied and will help you if you're brushing up on your italian.(However, you should have a pretty good grasp of the language before attempting any of the puzzles)

    For Italian language teachers - I'd get a subscription for the class if I were you!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good magazine, but hard to get July 6, 2016
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    Okay, gonna try this again - my first attempt at a review was rejected because I have delivery complaints. This is an excellent magazine and when we get it, we enjoy it. But continuing problems with delivery causes annoyance almost very week. I have communicated the delivery issues and so far, partial satisfaction.

    4.0 out of 5 stars La bomba is missing! December 27, 2011
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    Although my first review was complimentary, I have to amend it because we now have had to deal with TWO missing issues in less than 3 months. It does not bode well for the future. It's a weekly crossword puzzle!!!! If you miss one then it messes with your other ones. My mom is not happy and she noted that several years ago she was given a subscription as a gift and it always arrived, packaged far better. I blame Amazon and their subscription company. This is not the first problem I've had with Amazon's sub contractors, so to speak. Will I ever learn?! Below is my original review.

    My mother is simply addicted to these weekly crossword puzzles in Italian and this could not be a better gift. And she loves the humorous cartoons easily as much. Una cosa che non ha paragone!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Keep your mind sharp and entertained November 3, 2011
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    I grew up with this weekly publication. Puzzles, jokes, and fun facts. I actually buy this for my mother, and it is an important part of her life. She does all the crosswords, word games, and reads it cover to cover, and has done so for the last 30 years.

    It is in Italian, obviously, and that is the other benefit of it. If you want to keep up with the language, this is a great way to do it.

    Having it available through Amazon made it easy to subscribe to, and to renew (as I just did).
