Yeah, Ayn Rand is almost completely unheard of in Italy. With good reason: when you have Bruno Vespa's, you don't need more plutocratic apologetic.

I think I did not hear even the most ardent Italian conservative talk about "full, pure, uncontrolled, unregulated laissez-faire capitalism" and egoism as paradigm of moral virtue (I'm reading Wikipedia now)...

It seems some 70's Italian leftist nightmare about capitalism...

The Americans are more afraid of sex than politics.
And given that, today, the most popular books in America are the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy, I'm not sure that's really the case anymore. Like I said before, it's rather amusing to see S/M erotica prominently displayed in our neighborhood Wal-Mart and grocery stories.
Obviously I was joking, but from the link it seems that the only reason to ban a book in a democracy is "sex"
