The exceptions to this requirement are Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Rwanda, Singapore, and Thailand. 14 days quarantine is required for any non-EU/non-Schengen country.

*From within the EU:

Italy adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Italy are not based on the common “EU Traffic Lights” map.

In case of stay or transit through EU countries (List C) during the 14 days prior to the entrance in Italy, entry is permitted without the need to specify the reason for travelling.
