It looks like referer spam.
"Referer spam is a kind of search engine-targeted spam. The technique
involves making repeated web site requests using a fake referer url
pointing to a spam-advertised site. Sites that publicize their
referer statistics will then also link to the spammer's site. This
benefits the spammer because of the free link, and also gives the
spammer's site improved search engine link placement due to link-
counting algorithms that search engines use"
What you are seeing in your logs:
18.104.22.168 - - [16/Nov/2005:23:44:18 +0100] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200
1860 "http://puttane-grandi-tette.com" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE
6.0b; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.2914)"
Is a request for "/" on your server with "http://puttane-grandi-
tette.com" being (claimed as) the referer.
