Carseat-free Travel in Europe?

In about a month my wife, one-year-old, and I are moving to Italy. We plan to be there a year. As we finish up our plans for the move, we keep wondering if we really
need a carseat…

We have never owned a car in the States, but we did get an infant carseat to tote our infant boy around in Zipcars and cabs, and it's been pretty handy. Now that we're traveling to Bologna, Italy, where we'll live in a more walkable and public-transport friendly location, we're debating whether we should really purchase a convertible carseat for our boy, if we're just planning to use it for the ride from the airport to our apartment and maybe the odd cab ride.
I bet another Mefi member has confronted this problem. What have you done? Is it crazy not to have a carseat?
Personally, I'd love not to have another big contraption to lug around, but my wife is really worried that we'll need one. Our boy weighs 20 lb and is 30" long, for what it matters.
