Italians still love Sapphire

Forza ATI, Forza Sapphire
It turns out that there's an important Italian e-tailer, chl.it, which sells more ATI / Sapphire than Nvidia.
On left hand side on the lower corner the box “'I PIU' CLICCATI'” says that five out of five are ATI and 4 out of this list is Sapphire.
The top one is Sapphire's HD4650 1GB DDR2, runner up is Sapphire HD 4870 512MB PCIe, third place goes to Sapphire HD4870 X2 2GB PCIe then comes Gainward HD 4850 512MB PCIe and last on the list is Sapphire HD3650 512MB AGP.
As you can see, four out of five are HD4000-based and a few sources close to Italian market have said that traditionally ATI was much stronger than Nvidia, even in the times when Nvidia was the performance and market leader.
You can check the facts here.
Italians still adore Nvidia
