As an Italian citizen, if I open a company outside Italy (for example, a LLC in US) and operate strictly online, will I still have to pay business taxes on the income of this foreign company to the Italian government?

Since I live in Italy, of course I need to pay my personal income tax in Italy, including the money that I receive from this company.

My doubt is about business taxation on the money that my foreign business receive, not me.

Details: I am Italian and I am thinking in opening a LLC in US for my cloud computing company.

My initial understanding is that US-based companies must pay business taxes on US, but the Italian law isn't clear on that and it seems to try to apply business taxes on foreign companies when owned by Italians, even when those companies are not based on Italy.
