    Yes, as long as it is unlock it will work, the 3G radio is a quad band radio, so it will support all the bands supported around the world. I believe vodaphone have nice 3g service around italy.

    Yes, although you may find it hard to buy a SIM in Italy since the government has stricter requirements for getting a SIM.

    Just make sure you read up on the country specific rules, since when I was in Italy a few years back it was very difficult to find a place that would actually sell me a SIM since I was foreign.

    You should be fine, most large telecoms have special plans for travelers, they just get all your info, like passport and such.

    here is one by vodaphone in Italy
