[R] Sweave and accented letters

I often use Lyx/Sweave and I typically write in english.

Today I had to write a document in Italian and, as many of you know,
many italian popular words use è, ù, é. ò, etc.

I discovered that if I type in Italian (that is there is at least one
letter with accent)  with the Sweave module selected lye is not able
to correctly compile the document.

I tried to change the input encoding, but it still does not work. I am
attaching a basic lye file that illustrates the problem.
