While Italy may be famed for its sunshine, Italians often despair at the arrival of summer. The Local picks out the top ten things that make Italians' blood boil alongside the temperature.

Foreigners flock to Italy in summer, soaking up the sun and overdosing on ice-cream.

The Local has collected a sea of complaints and reasons which prompt Italians to despair of the summertime.
