I didn't think he could, but if he can then we will apply for the visa here. Thanks anyway for your very informative post.
You should contact the Italian consulate in NY, but be aware that there IS an EU directive on non-EU spouses of EU nationals taking up residence together in another EU country. Italy should have some sort of "accelerated" or "simplified" procedure for granting the non-EU spouse legal residence (with full working privileges) once the EU spouse has established that they are resident.
