Translation:Have you been to Italy?
I think "gone" might be slightly more accurate than "been to" because in the Chinese 去 (go/ gone) is used when the conversation is some place other than Italy. (If you where in Italy at the time it would be 来 - "come to...") Where as "been to" could be used in either situation. At any rate, "gone" should be accepted.
That implies that wherever you have gone, you haven't returned yet, and so would not be said in face-to-face, only on the phone or in written communication. I can't say if it is a valid translation of the Chinese but it is certainly has a different meaning to "have you been to italy"
"You have been there" means you have gone there and have returned home (now you are in your own place). "You have gone there" means you have gone there, but haven't returned yet (now you are still there or in another place).

This is not correct. Either of them means that you went there or you were there at some time in the past but you are not there now.
I put in "Have you ever been to Italy?" and the system accepted it; apparently the system accepts it with or without the "ever". This is inconsistent with another question in this lesson, that translated as "Have you ever seen a blue bird?"; this time, when i wrote it without the "ever", the system didn't accept it. More reason why the answer "Have you seen a blue bird?" should be accepted, as i proposed.
I wrote 'Have you already been to Italy?' which was not accepted. While 'have you been to Italy' is clearly correct I think the 'already' to signify 过 is normal English usage.
去过 here indicates "ever going before" so I see why you chose "already". But to me "have you already been" implies that you've been there sooner than was expected vs. have you ever been at any time in the past.
Why is the past tense of "to go" translated as "been" instead of "went"? Have you ever went to Italy?
If you use "have" as the auxiliary verb, you are using the present perfect tense which reqire the past participle "gone" or "been". "Have you gone" or "have you been".
Because that's just how is done in English. I'd speculate that historically this was the last tense of "to wend", a pretty archaic word meaning to travel in an indirect manner. However that now has a distinct past form "wended". Anyway, if you're learning English, just accept it!
Oops, i realise i answered something other than your question!
By "been" is normal usage in English too. If you wanted you could also say "have you gone to".
"Went" can be used in statements but not questions.
