    Most likely yes. Some Italians are fluent in English but the majority aren't. You'd need to learn Italian if you plan to work or live there for an extended period of time. If you're just a tourist visiting for a few days or weeks I'd say you only need to learn a few useful expressions.

    You would be wise to learn some Italian words and expressions. Simple ideas such as "Please" and "Thank you". If you are going to an area of almost anywhere in Europe which sees a lot of tourists you can be sure that quite a lot of people will understand English if you speak slowly and clearly. But they will warm to you if they see that you have made some effort to learn their language.

    As a tourist in ANY country it's only sensible (and polite) to learn some basic phrases such as Hello, Goodbye, Please, Thank you, Do you speak English?, Where is the American [British, German, Peruvian, whatever] Embassy?, Please call the police, How much is that? and HELP!

    If you WERE to go to Italy for how long? It depends.

    For a one week vacation? Probably not, although it would help. These days, your smart phone can translate a lot.
