Italians Seek Wizards’ Help During Economic Crisis
By Flavia Krause-Jackson and Flavia Rotondi

Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Italians spend about 6 billion euros ($8.3 billion) on spells and astrology each year to help them with financial troubles, according to a Jan. 28 study by the European Consumers Association.

About 30,000 Italians spend every day between 20 euros and 600 euros each on sorcery, according to the report, which was conducted along with Telefono Antiplagio, an Italian voluntary service that collects reports from victims of con artists.

Italians living in Lombardy, where Milan is located, spend the most on the occult, splashing out 90 million euros a year on various forms of magic, including fortune tellers.
