I'm an American with a D multi-entry visa for Italy for 1 year. Can I visit the USA for 2 months and come back, or is there a time length limit on how long I can leave Italy and return?
As long as your visa (or residence permit card if you have one) remains valid, you're free to exit and re-enter Italy.
