"Allting kan gå itu" - "Everything can fall apart" This is also a line from a famous Swedish song, so that's why i chose this sentence!

Here, "gå itu" is a verb. "Gå" is an auxiliary verb, as "fall" in "fall apart".

Itu can also simply mean "in two pieces" as said above! Here, "I" basically means in, and "tu" means two. So, "In two"

This one is tricky to translate to Dutch: tweedelig, tweevoudig, dubbel, uitelkaar, in twee delen. There might be a direct translation out there but I gotta check my dikke van Dale for that xD.
