Hi thank you for your message, you cannot get the passport without his permission and you cannot take the child out of the country without a court order or his permission. If you want to get a court order enabling you to get the passport without his permission and taking her to Italy then you need to apply for a specific issue order. A ‘specific issue order’ is used to look at a specific question about how the child is being brought up.
Follow these steps to apply for a court order:
1) Read guidance CB001 on making an application: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/family-court-applications-that-involve-children-cb1

3) Send the original form and 3 copies of it to the nearest court that deals with cases involving children, you can find the nearest court here: https://courttribunalfinder.service.gov.uk/search/
