I did read an interesting article about never using your card in Italy
Why not?

I've been doing so for nearly 30 years without problem.

In the North or the South?

I should think if people are having problems, it's more likely to be in Naples and Rome and other tourist hot spots but that's just an uneducated guess.

Don't use your card in restaurants in the U.S. either.
The class of fraud which involves skimming a card and making a clone of it, has been more or less eliminated in Europe, with the introduction of cards with an embedded chip.
America, however has not yet (fully) implemented this technology, still relying on the (copyable) magnetic strip, so cloned card frauds are common there.
