  1. Thank you for the list of Italian newspapers… I now spend about 15/20 minutes a day reading the online newspapers, and it works for me! Very useful episode, thank you.

  2. According to the dictionary, the word cronaca means chronicle, report, news, commentary. So, it is the word nera (black) that is translated as crime in the expression cronaca nera? Can you explain, please?

  3. Yes, the Italian word “cronaca” means “chronicle, report, news, commentary”. There are several types of “cronaca” (news) in Italy: “cronaca nera” (crime news), cronaca bianca (literally: white news, meaning news about culture and non-violent events), cronaca politica (political news), cronaca letteraria (news about literature), and many more.
