Avvisi were hand-written newsletters used to convey political, military, and economic news quickly and efficiently throughout Europe, and more specifically Italy, during the early modern era.

Avvisi can be divided into two categories: 'public' avvisi and 'secret' avvisi, though each copy was often written by the same person. In Italian, the word avviso translates to a notice, a warning, advice, or an announcement.
