I think this just means the LaTeX format was 'dumped' with Italian 
hyphenation turned off.

Go to /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/generic/config/, make a copy 
of language.dat, create in your home directory a directory 
~/Library/texmf/tex/generic/config/ and put the copy there. Then comment 
out the line for Italian hyphenation:


Next you must re-'dump' the LaTeX format. I'm not quite sure how to do 
this from the command line, but I think running again the 
teTeX-installer would do this: I think Gerben's installer reads all 
available config files and does all the initializations required.

Hope this helps,
