What does "locale charmap" say?

If this is "UTF-8" this could be a problem in jfbterm font.

Otherwise, something wrong in the lat0-sun16 font we use for
ISO-8859-15 maybe

What happens if you "dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest" AFTER the
base system install (ie after login as root from a prompt) and "export
LANG=it_IT" ?
