Please, don't ;-)
Next time, please try:
# loadkeys /usr/share/keymap/..??.perhaps_mac./it-something.gz
to load a console map that will suit you -sorry I don't remember which
keymap corresponds to the it-qzerty, but I'm pretty sure I saw it.
I opened a bug against kbd-chooser of the D-I that doesn't
allow a user to choose properly its keymap:
If you want to share you experience please email to:
 And if you loose a character try to map you keymap by yourself
with a pencil and a sheet :-/ I think that characters have been messed
up, but dot cancelled.
P.S. you can also send a mil to the italian linux ppc mailing list:
