Eye on Italy Angolo d’Italiano:

  • Giallo: Literal meaning is “yellow,” but also term for crime fiction/mystery/thriller/whodunits that comes from the fact that cheap paperback crime books (like those of Agatha Cristie) used to come with yellow covers. It’s also used to describe real-life mysteries.
    • “Murder, She Wrote” when it’s broadcast in Italy is called “La signora in giallo” which is literally “the woman in yellow” but in this case is “the woman in mystery.”
