You won't be able to get an OTA update in Italy because the update is delivered via AT&T which you probably don't have access to. You would need to have a valid AT&T SIM card in the phone with Wi-Fi access. You may be able to update manually in 2 steps first to 4.1.1 and then to 4.3 which is the latest OS version by following the process in the thread below ...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2387423

Download the 2 stock files for 4.1.2 and 4.3 respectively. Copy both zips to a good quality micro SDHC card
Power off the phone. Place the SD card into your phone. Boot into recovery mode by simultaneously holding down the volume up, power and home buttons. Wait until you see a blue message flash across the screen then release the power button but continue to hold the volume up and menu button until the Android image appears. Install the 4.1.2. Wait for the process to finish and your phone to reboot. Power off again and repeat for 4.3. Hope this helps you.

If you got to that stage, then it worked. Sometimes it takes several minutes for the rest of the set-up menu to come up after reboot. Wait for a while and if nothing comes up, pull out and replace the battery, then reboot into recovery mode. Do a hard wipe/factory reset in recovery mode and reboot.

You do not need to root your phone for this process. In fact, it may not work with a rooted phone. You can, however, still root your phone after the update and there are several ways of doing this. However, first get through the updating process and let's know how that goes.
