Is it safe to use a dual voltage appliance in Italy without a converter?

My appliance is 110-240V 50/60Hz and 50 watts is that okay to use without a converter?

    A lot of appliances and gadgets are now manufactured that way so they can be made one way and sold anywhere in the world. The only thing they change out is the power cord\plug. Generally as long as the appliance shows a 110-240V range it will be perfectly safe to use. You will just need something to make the power plug compatible with Euro outlets.

    That is what many are designed for today, you may need some plug adapter, like blade contacts to the European round pin sort, but will still function properly.

    Could be more specific knowing what appliance you are talking about.

    Some have a selector switch that must be set properly.

    As long as you don't plug it into the shaver outlet in a hotel bathroom. Some hotels have these, close to the mirror/basin, and they're usually limited to low power (10...20 watts range).

    Regular mains voltage in Italy (as anywhere in Europe) is 240V/50Hz.

    Yes,

    but if it has a voltage selector, be sure to set that correctly.

    Dual volts usually have some sort of switch, control,lever that needs to be moved into the proper position.
