Why is the Speedo popular in Italy?

and a day at the beach is always welcome

But can anyone tell me how the Speedo became so popular for men of ALL ages?
Often they are very complementary, but not always……..
A friend from Northern Italy tells me that this type of swimwear was the only one worn in the 80’s and 90’s and perhaps today the young men want to show off their muscles.  

Bikini’s for men are often called by the brand name, Speedo.   You many not see this style on many USA beaches but you will find them on many Italian beaches and on men of all ages.

If you know a speedo man, can you ask
