40. Actually, I think what happened was that
the age of consent was 12 in Italy at the time of the Vatican's creation, and they just haven't bothered to change it. (Italy has.) I don't really think the age of consent is any big deal there, because they don't want you fucking at any age, anyway. Even sex within marriage is heavily discouraged.
