Passport Requirement

Am traveling to Italy returning October 29th. My passport expires in February 2008, four months after my return date. I would like to avoid the current long wait to renew my passport before going, but have gotten confusing information on whether there is a requirement in Italy or the US for my passport to be valid for 3 or 6 months following my scheduled return. I contacted 4 Italian consulates, got four responses, two say 3 months and two said 6 months. Can anyone give me a definitive answer? Thank you!

According to the Italian Consulate's New York website, it is 3 months. http://tinyurl.com/37wmes
Print out the web page and take it with you. In case the immigration officials or even the airline give you any crap, you have it in writing.
