On June 20 I am backpacking around Europe for almost 3 months with friends and then I will be living in Italy for 3 months as an Au Pair. I am unsure what visa I will need to apply for.

Will I need a study visa (I can sign up for italian classes)?

A subordinate visa? And am I able to have a Schengen visa and another visa purely for Italy?

There are two websites which give you more information on the process:
