SOCIAL HINTS
------------

THE HANDSHAKE IS THE CUSTOMARY ITALIAN GREETING IN
BUSINESS LIFE AND IN SOCIAL LIFE. IT IS CONSIDERED
VERY IMPOLITE TO REFUSE AN INVITATION TO DINNER. IF
INVITED TO SOMEBODY'S HOUSE YOU SHOULD BRING A GIFT
WITH YOU. SMOKING IS RESTRICTED IN PUBLIC AREAS, SUCH
AS BUSES, TAXIS, CINEMAS AND THEATRES.


BUSINESS HINTS
--------------

BUSINESS IS CONDUCTED IN A FORMAL MANNER AND BUSINESS SUITS
SHOULD BE WORN. IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE APPOINTMENTS WELL IN
ADVANCE. IF WORKING WITH BUREAUCRATIC TRANSACTIONS PATIENCE
IS NECESSARY. ITALIANS APPRECIATE IT WHEN YOU MAKE AN EFFORT
TO USE THEIR LANGUAGE. IF USING ITALIAN DURING BUSINESS MEETINGS
USE THE POLITE THIRD PERSON FORM OF ADDRESS. AVOID BUSINESS
TRAVEL TO ITALY DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST AS MOST BUSINESSES
CLOSE FOR THEIR SUMMER VACATION.
