I have a multiple-entry Schengen visa (Tourist/Turismo) from the Italian consulate until the 8th of July, 2018 (valid from 16 June 2018) since I went to a conference in Italy from the USA (I am studying in the US on F1 visa). I need to go to Germany from the 20th to the 25th of August for another conference.

Here are my questions.

  1. Do I have to go to the German consulate (for me Atlanta) since it will be my only destination country in Europe?
  2. Do I apply for a new Schengen visa or ask for an extension of the visa (if such a process exists) depending on my date of appointment being before or after the 8th of July?
  3. If I need an extension, do I have to go to the Italian consulate I went to or to the German consulate?

Yes.

Do I apply for a fresh Schengen visa or ask for an extension of the visa (if such a process exists) depending on my date of appointment being before or after the 8th of July?

There is no extension process. You will apply for a new visa.

If I need an extension, do I have to go to the Italian consulate I went to or to the German consulate?

You do not need to do anything with the Italian consulate.

As o.m. notes in a comment:

It may be possible that you do not have to go to the German consulate in person because your biometrics will be on file.
