A rare typo has escaped Alex's keyboard here. It's "odd", rather than
"off".

I haven't yet read any of the survey (The Economist arrives a little
late here in the colonies) but it seems likely that they're making a
small joke about what a British tourist might say. And while I
wouldn't be surprised to hear some things in Italy called odd, I would
be surprised to hears someone say that the country was "off".

Regards,
Matt
