Check out midwiferytoday.com They have a forum board that includes an international forum.
They also sell a book entitled "Pathways to Midwifery" (I think that is the correct title!) for about $30 that I personally think would be a great investment.
If you are permanently moving to Italy, you should perhaps hold off. Maybe become a doula, get some birthing experience, and then use that to help you get your midwifery degree/certification/whatever in Italy. I know if Germany, the nursing tract and midwifery tract are completely different. Here in the US, since I have my nursing degree, I could go on to graduate school and get my midwifery degree---it is a continuation of a nursing degree. In Germany, I would have to start completely over. Different countries have different models for training, and I would definately take that into consideration before you invest alot of time, money, and energy in a course of study.
Good luck with it all, though, and let us know how it turns out. I'm curious to hear about midwifery in Italy!!
