This new puzzle consists of a crossword. For those who don't know this is done using the Italian style (as opposed to US/UK), so two-letter words are allowed and defined. This crossword puzzle has a 180 rotational symmetry.

The definitions are given in a block style because even in this format the question becomes really long. Feel free to use the image here provided to show the solution in your answer, however, any other drawing method is fine.
