Why is the “Swiss Review” not available in Italian?
For the information to Swiss in Italy, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) did not commission SwissCommunity but the “Gazzetta Svizzera”. All Swiss registered with a Swiss representation in Italy receive the magazine “Gazetta Svizzera” (only available in Italian) instead of the “Swiss Review”. Articles on votes and elections, information from FDFA and the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad, SwissCommunity, – as well as further contents from various topics are taken over from the “Swiss Review”. The Italian magazine is available online at gazzettasvizzera.org > Edizioni. For this reason, the “Swiss Review” is not available in Italian.
