Italy's penchant for it is really unaccountable !
I was only talking about real fur but thanks for the additional detail. I remember reading before that fur is common in the north and I remember seeing a lot of fur coats in the shop windows when I visited Vienna last winter.
Isn't wearing real fur also illegal in Britain? I'm sure I heard that somewhere.
