PayPal is country specific. You wont be able to link your UK bank account to an Italian PayPal account. You will want to close your UK PayPal account since you don't live there anymore and open an Italian PayPal account in Italy with Italian financial accounts. You may want to unlink your financial accounts from your UK PayPal account before closing it.

 

Here is a PayPal link with details on this situation.

Here is the PayPal Italy homepage link.

Also, I wanted to let you know that Italy is one of few countries that PayPal offers a debit card in. Here is a link for the card.
