It's been a while since we held a quiz. With the academic year over at SAIS Bologna and summer on the way, it seems natural to have a bit of fun.

The first person to answer the question correctly will receive a SAIS Bologna tee shirt. To win, you need to tell us who you are. You can send in your answer either by commenting on this post or with an email to

So here we go:

I ride a broomstick and deliver sweets and gifts to children on the eve of the day before the new deadline for applications to SAIS Bologna.

Who am I?

There is no fooling our readers. We had a record number of participants in this quiz. Fiona Skinner edged out a flurry of competitors, all of whom quickly identified La Befana as the woman on a broomstick who visits homes in Italy on the eve of the Epiphany, which falls on January 6. That is one day before our new deadline for applications: January 7. Congratulations to Fiona. If you send an email to with your address and tee shirt size (we have S, M, L, XL), we'll post your prize right away. Thanks to all for taking part in the fun.
