Visiting an Italian Internet Cafe? Bring Passport.

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. Italy passed a new antiterrorism law in July.

Now anyone visiting a public internet cafe in Italy must register with the cafe. Before you can use a public computer, phone or fax machine you must give the cafe your passport which they must photocopy.

The internet cafes have to document which computer etc you use and also document the time you logged on and the time you logged off. The internet cafes have all had to buy special software that records which websites you have visited.

All this information then has to be turned over to the police per the new law.

Evidently some internet cafes are going to close as they do not want to play "policeman" to their customers plus the aggreviation of the extra cost and paperwork.

Anyone interested in this can read about it on www.usatoday.com

First time I have heard about this so it was news to me. Thought others here on Fodors might be interested. Cheers!
