Dear Readers,

 Since its inception, the Italian Insider has striven to bring you breaking news and exclusive investigative stories relating to the Italian Penisula and the Mediterranean, all accessible through our online edition,

 Over the last five years, we have been the first publication to inform its readers of the IFAD Director General Kanayo Nwanze's expenses scandal, Brazil’s candidature to run the FAO exclusively two years before the UN agency's election of its Brazilian director general, and the Vatican’s decision to curtail Pope Benedict XVI’s foreign travel schedule because of concern over the pontiff’s health.

 Elsewhere we have published award winning writers Megan Williams and Margaret Stenhouse’s commentaries and features on Italian life, best-selling author Mike Mewshaw’s travel pieces, Desmond O'Grady's book reviews and unrivalled analysis of Italy’s long-running political crisis from James Walston and Philip Willan.

 In keeping with a desire to improve our service, The Italian Insider introduced an Online Subscription service on 31 April.

 We also offer a full-colour print edition subscription for an introductory price of € 44 (including VAT) a year which gives you 11 issues of the 24-page print edition delivered to your door (including € 35 for postage and packing to Rome/Italy).

 If you take out a print subscription we will give you an online subscription for the year, ABSOLUTELY FREE!

 If you would like to receive a trial issue of the print edition of the Insider please e mail and we will bill you 5 euros for a copy of the newspaper sent to your home or office including post and packing.

 As an online subscriber you will receive:

 IMMEDIATE AND UNLIMITED ACCESS to every story released daily

 UNLIMITED ACCESS to our searchable archive of past articles

 REGULAR EMAIL UPDATES especially tailored to your personal interest

 PLUS many more travel and dining offers available only to online subscribers.

 Annual subscription to the Italian Insider website is now -- and for a limited period only - just € 20 a year, - 16 € for 4 months - 8 euro for a 1 week trial.
 We are confident that our online readers will appreciate this decision and continue to enjoy our independent, comprehensive coverage of Italian affairs.

 John Phillips, Editor.
