The supermarkets in Italy have great produce. Will you be in a position to prepare your own food. I suggest that the most important thing to take will be prep equipment.
I purchased the Tribest Personal Blender from Alissa's site and travel with it everywhere. I was told at travel stores there is a converter you can purchase so the blender can be used in Europe.

Francesca, I've been to Italy last year in June. There is so much wonderful, frehs, ripe fruit there, that I had the best feast ever. I simply borrowed a knife from the kitchen and a plate from the hotel I was staying, and didn't need anymore. I enjoyed watermelon, rockmelon, peaches, apples, pears, bananas. I took some nuts with me, but I did not eat much of it, I had fruit instead. Yum. You won't starve there! :)

Hi Francesca, I think everything depends on where in Italy you are travelling - a small village or a city, and if you usually buy organic or not. Also, the period of the year is important. We do not import so much tropical and exotic fruit as I have seen in other countries, but if you travel during summer you will be able to enjoy a lot of nice and local food.
If you go to restaurants you can pretty much find a salad everywhere, but do not expect fantastic variety and fantasy here. For some reason I've found them always boring and poor (just lettuce carrot and tomato). It will be much better for you if you just buy your food from the shops.
Enjoy Italy, divertiti!
