Great country. Been there five times with my partner. Major regions from the North (Lombardy) to South (Sicily). We have always been warmly welcomed at hotels, restaurants, tours/attractions, retail stores, performing arts venues, etc. In fact, we find the hospitality of the Italians to be head and shoulders above any other place we've been. Tourism is their business, yet their interest does seem quite genuine. My bet is their 'desire' is to have laws at least as open as France.

As long as you bring money and leave tips everybody will love you in Italy.
The some people that smiled at you would lose instantly their smile if you were to work with them or take a flat in the some building were they live.
