Should Italian student visa take 2 months to process?

My classes start on 1st of November and I applied on 27th August for a student visa...and NO ANSWER UP TILL NOW! I'm dying of frustration here! The maximum time should be 21 calendar days, not 2 months! WTH! Embassy strictly asked us not to call/email/visit them and my enrolment date is nearing! I did everything I could-contact the university regarding this matter and other small matters! But dear expats, did you face the same long..very long delay?
