Question
What are the best italian dairy goats, that produce most milk?

Answer
Since I am not familiar with the goat breeds you have in Italy I cannot tell you from my experience.  If you were in the USA then the Saanen breed would be the highest milk producer.  If you go to the internet to http://eng.agraria.org/goat.htm  this lists all the goat breeds in Italy and clicking on each name gives you more information on that breed, including milk production.  Hope that helps.
