What is the typical dress code at work and in public places? Is formal dress ever required?

Typical business attire. Italians do dress up a bit more than Americans. - Sep 26, 2017
At work, business attire. In public, it's best to try and blend in. Italians, especially the women, tend to be very stylish. Dressing like an American (shorts, baseball cap, flip flops) will make you appear as a target to thieves and hucksters. - Jul 8, 2009
