Friday's False Friend

magazine v. magazzino

We like to read lots of magazines in the US. I grew up in a household that had about 15 titles delivered weekly or monthly. The word magazine can easily be mixed up with the Italian magazzino, which means warehouse. After printing, the magazines might stay in a magazzino before being sent to subscribers and newstands. Use the Italian word rivista to translate magazine.

Eng) A new Italian edition of 'Wired' magazine was launched this year.

It) Una nuova edizione italiana della rivista 'Wired' รจ uscita quest'anno.
