All the standard contracts in Naples call for the seller to pay _all_ commissions, so if anything else happens you've gone off the beaten path. Nothing wrong with that, but there it is.
As a practical matter, even though the seller pays, you may be sure that he considered that cost in the price of his property, and after all it is the buyer who writes the check.
Those two facts almost make the question, "who pays" irrelevant, although looking at sell side of the closing statement, which seller would agree with me? ;-)
The two questions that are really important are: did I pay/get a fair price, and was I well represented?
