This weekend in Verona I learned that Italians are super into:
1) The Simpsons (all boys seem to be required to wear "Duff Beer" shirts by some sort of law)
2) Gary Coleman (many weird shirts with his baby face on them)
and 3) HARD ROCK CAFE (I think everyone in Europe owns a HRC t-shirt and is VERY proud to wear it out on the street)
Also, on the shirt front, Italians have the weirdest phrase t-shirts. Examples include: "Don't worry be zappy," "If music is too loud, your too old," and "glamour victim."
