    Answered . You need to talk to a lawyer ... starting with why you used a TEMPORARY business visitor visa for a 1 year stay in the US.

    If you go to the US Embassy in Roma, or one of the US Consular posts in Italia .... you will be given a VERY HARD TIME.

    You need to work on your story, in consultation with an attorney.

    Many of us use Skype for this type of consultation.
