La Settimana Enigmistica
The first print issue should arrive in 4-6 weeks.
International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.
When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 6-10 weeks, unless otherwise noted.
Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.
Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.
- Control your subscription settings anytime using Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.

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