I love Italian lenguage and Italy. I spent there about 6 month or so, back in 1989, wow, 17 year ago. While I was there I picked up enough Italian to be able to communicate, but, I guess, not enough to remember any now.
I'm sorry I cant help you with American food, as I don't think it's the best food in the world, sorry folks, can't say that I like Italian food either, I love Chinese.
The only thing I can help you id Guacamole, which is really not American actually. It is probably Mexican, not sure. I have a killer recipe for it. If you want let me know.

Here it is:

Guacamole:

This is an authentic Mexican recipe, the real Mexican.
Very simple to make.

2 ripe avocados
1 small ripe tomato
1 red jalapeño peppers (or green one if you like it hot)
1 small bunch of fresh cilantro (coriander)
1 small red onion
Juice of ½ of freshly squeezed lime (depends on season the lime could be very juice or not, so adjust to taste)
A pinch of salt.
If you like very hot/spicy you can add couple of drops of some hot sauce.

Mash avocado with potato masher, chop everything very finely, mix together, enjoy. Keep it covered tightly so the avocado doesn’t get dark. It will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, or even more.

Sorry, you're in Italy and can't find sliced bacon and salted butter? How about unsliced bacon which you could slice and unsalted butter which you could salt?

As for frozen waffles, yeah, you might be right that you can't find those, but you can always make your own and freeze them, can't you?

You do realize that trying to get everything you could get in the States is not only the shortest route to insanity, but also to the poorhouse?! You'd have to ship express if the goods are perishable, particularly if they're frozen, and on top of shipping fees, you'd have to add in customs clearance fees which can be incredibly expensive.

You live in a place reknowned for its amazing food. Can't you explore all the wonders that are available there first?

I suggest you go and pop a Rafaello in your mouth and give it a bit of thought ...!

Very wise words, Ayrton,
I got sick of the food network for exactly that reason. It seemed like every single TV Chef's recipe called for pancetta instead of bacon, prosciutto instead of ham, parmigiano reggiano, "the undisputed king of cheeses," etc, etc, etc, ad nauseam.

If I were to eat pork I'd go with proscuito versus ham on any given day.
