An American citizen does not need a visa to enter Italy provided that their stay in Italy does NOT exceed 90 days. If any of the passengers in your travel group has other than an American passport, kindly have them contact the Italian Consulate in New York City to determine if they require visas for entrance into Italy.

If possible, you should renew your passport approximately nine (9) months before it expires. Some countries require that your passport be valid at least six (6) months beyond the date of your trip. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met.
