These 10 skills are the most rated skills that are only available in the Italian market. The Italian Alexa marketplace is the smallest marketplace with little over 3600 skills (around 1/20 of the US marketplace). When developers publish skills, they often share them with as many markets as possible, so there’s a level of homogeneity across countries. Here, you can see skills that are popular in Italy and aren’t available anywhere else (though some similar might exist, obviously)! If you’re looking for ideas, this is probably the most valuable post we’ve written! Take these concepts, see if they exist in the US market (or others), and adapt them. Better yet, contact the developers (though this can be hard to find contact info) and see if they want to work with you on adapting their already validated skill!

You can request the horoscope of the day for your zodiac sign.
Random review: I love Alexa
Testa o Croce by Alexander Perucci – 3.7 out of 5, 398 ratings, 10 reviews
Ask Alexa to throw a coin for you and find out if a head or a cross comes out.
Random review: He has to do a basic thing but he does it right, it would be epic if when you expressly ask him to “Throw a coin” you heard the sound of a coin being thrown
Parola Inglese del giorno by caccia78 – 3.9 out of 5, 489 ratings, 10 reviews
“English word of the day” gives you a new word in English every day, along with its pronunciation, spelling and meaning.
Random review: Nice, but it would be nice to show the word on the display…
Fantacalcio by Quadronica srl – 4.1 out of 5, 500 ratings, 3 reviews
All the news from the world of Fantasy told by our editorial staff.
Random review: Unique reference for those who want to find news about fantasy football, done really well, good ( out of 5)
Corso di Inglese by Cosimo – 3.5 out of 5, 516 ratings, 10 reviews
With the “English Course” you will have the opportunity to take vocal lessons to learn the basics of the English language.
Random review: it should interact with the user, instead it goes on by itself without interpreting whether or not I hang, nice but not very effective
Super Quiz by Francesco Pasquale – 3.3 out of 5, 540 ratings, 10 reviews
Super Quiz takes you and your friends (up to 6 players) on a thrilling challenge between TV series questions, movies, sports, art and culture!
Random review: I tried various skills focused on quizzes that were poorly designed, but this is very responsive and asks you to give the multiple answer based on the number and not based on the word, so as to prevent Alexa does not recognize the word because pronounced perhaps with the wrong accent. You can play up to 6 people. Recommended!
Scoreggia Adesso by Alessandro Pappalardo – 3.9 out of 5, 725 ratings, 10 reviews
After starting the skill with the command “Alexa, Open Fart Now”, you can continue the conversation by asking me what I ate or inviting me to go to the bathroom.
Random review: scherzo is a really nice app to laugh at! I hope it’s constantly updated with new annoying noises!
Clem Quiz by Clementoni Spa – 3.9 out of 5, 729 ratings, 10 reviews
Challenge the Clem Quiz! In one player mode you can challenge Alexa and beat your record! If you choose to play in two, you can challenge your friend or even an adult! May the best man win!
Random Review: The game would also be nice but sometimes it doesn’t recognize the correct answers. Even if you repeat them by approaching or changing person (maybe he didn’t recognize my son’s voice) the result doesn’t change.
This is actually quite frustrating and to go further it is better to give the wrong answer than to keep repeating the right one.
Having said that, the idea is not bad and you can play with your children choosing the level of difficulty for each one between adult and child to make the challenge more correct.
Personally I would have made it a bit faster, since the time between reading the question and asking for the answer is not very fast.
If it were to improve speech recognition, it would be five-star.
Strumenti Musicali by AR Entertainment – 3.9 out of 5, 880 ratings, 10 reviews
Listen (and see on your Echo Spot and Echo Show) to more than 80 different musical instruments.
Random review: Nice, but 1. plays very few notes. 2. once you find an instrument you like it should play more than just a few notes 3. Alexa is too long!
