Can a Canadian rent a car in Italy without an International Driving Permit?

My brother is going to Italy in two weeks time, which is a bit tight to arrange an International Driving Permit before he leaves Canada. Will car rental companies in Italy still rent to him? Plenty of online car rental sites will accept a reservation without mentioning the IDP, but I'm worried that when he gets there, they won't actually rent to him if he doesn't have it.
Also, how much trouble will he be in if he gets stopped by traffic police without one?
