Faithful to a summer tradition of urban flight and seaside frolic that dates to Caesar's day, Italy is closed this month. And once again during these sweltering dog days, it is the dogs who suffer most. The annual August divorce between 60 million Italians and their cities is accompanied again this year by rampant dog abandonment that kills not only dogs but also people. There's a saying in Italy about dogs: "Under the tree at Christmas, onto the highway in August."

Cabinet Minister Loris Fortuna, considered the father of divorce and abortion legislation in Italy, has died of cancer in a Rome hospital. Fortuna, who defied both the Vatican and thousands of predominantly Roman Catholic letter writers around the world, died Thursday at age 61. He was a criminal lawyer, journalist and longtime Socialist legislator who had served since August in Socialist Premier Bettino Craxi's Cabinet as minister of relations with the European Economic Community.

Sparked mainly by the Swedes but aided by the Finns, both of whom joined only 17 months ago, a powerful new campaign is underway at the European Union to pry open its institutions and expose its work to the full glare of public scrutiny for the first time. Encouraged by the arrival of its like-minded Scandinavian cousins, Denmark has also taken up the cause, as have the Dutch.

An American visitor to this serene medieval village north of Rome was shocked recently when he stepped out the front door of his host's rural home and found a shotgun-armed hunter intently tracking one of the host family's dachshunds across the lawn. Later the same morning, just 20 feet from the obviously inhabited house, two loads of lead pellets splattered the leaves of a live oak where a songbird had been whistling moments before.

Guests described the evening as cozy and autographed each other's calligraphic menus as souvenirs. But conversation at the opening session of this powerful new group with members from four continents centered on weighty world problems, from human rights to environmental dangers.
