    Yes, there is a difference in voltage BUT all Macs works across the globe, so all you need is a cheap adapter for your wall outlet from US to ITA.

    Easy as pie.

    ^ just to add in case the OP wants to see it in print.

    - Line voltage: 100-240V AC

    - Frequency: 50Hz to 60Hz, single phase

    And the power supplies are auto-switching so you don't need to set anything. Just need the plug adapter for your country as stated above.
