They shouldn't accept that. Just government-issued ID cards. You can't
imagine the burden that poses even on $COMPANY sysadmins: we need to log
visited websites in a manner so that they can be linked to people BUT we
can't look at the logs because it's against the law to trace employees'
activities - just keep them in case the police needs that.
Needless to say, it's an anti-terror law. One of the post-9/11 ones, not
one of the since-late-70s anti-Red Brigades
for-emergency-only-but-then-never-dismissed ones. BTW; you need an ID
anyway to register at any hotel - that's the reason why RMS in Italy is
always hosted at private homes.
