    I’m not too sure just what you mean when you say “a country with a culture of shopping”. My experience shows Italian use of teh web as a shopping tool very much on the rise and would be even more if banks and credit institutions were more open and flexible with users.

    Online shopping is developing along with the bank sphere among ordinary people. On the other hand Italy is a shopping country with a culture of shopping and ecommerce can hardly be competitive.
