Hi, Giuseppe,

I just spend about 6 months with finding out how to setup a working shop 
within TYPO3 that is also meeting the e-commerce laws on the German and 
Austrianmarket. Unfortunately I must say, the shop extensions are all 

commerce, which still offers the most possibilities with a typical 
TYPO3-use-and-feel, is maintained in the SVN, but still very toublesome 
in some respects such as weight-dependent shipping, additional rates for 
PayPal (eg) and a general keeping up-to-date with the actual TYPO3 core 
(lots of deprecated code).

You may want to have a look at Multistore. Documentation is not too 
good, but the extensions is quite fabulous, even though the idea of 
frontend editing brings problems with it as soon as you use fixed 
containers and z-indexes (some editing areas disappear behind the layout).

Otherwise - that was my way to go - xtcmodified is very good, expecially 
the implementation of layout is awysomely easy. So once you have your 
index template in TYPO3, you can use it there.

But it will need some hand work, eg to make it utf8 throughout (the 
title tag is a problem...), or some parts even need fooling around in 
the core files...

But it has lots of features that work very fine and make up for the 
extra effort.

Good luck!
