You'll find more in my procedures page, but let me try and answer this important question.
For its own religious reasons, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has spent years and years microfilming the records of much of the world, with a special emphasis on Europe. Those microfilmed records, some of which are on the Internet, have been stored in the church's granite vaults, located not far from where I live, and in the church's family history library.. The church makes them accessible to the general public, as well as to professional researchers such as myself.
This means that a large percentage of the records of Italy are more accessible in Salt Lake City, Utah, than they are in Italy itself. All it takes is for a person who is skilled in genealogical research to sift through the massive amount of information and put a family tree together. I speak, read, and write Italian fluently, so I can find materials that many ordinary genealogists will pass right over.
Some material is still accessible only in Italy, of course, but a vast majority is accessible only 25 minutes away from where I live.
