Best iPad Mini Keyboard Cases
Zagg Slim Book
If you want your iPad mini to essentially look like a mini laptop, the Zagg Slim Book keyboard case does a good job of accomplishing that.
The case essentially combines a keyboard with a normal iPad case and hinges them together like a laptop, turning the iPad mini into a 7.9-inch laptop of sorts, and it looks really good. Plus, you can remove the iPad from the keyboard anytime and reattach it with ease.
The keyboard itself is backlit, which is nice for typing in the dark, and it has a battery life of around two years, which is absolutely incredible for an accessory like this. A two-year battery life essentially means you can charge it once and forget about it.

Because of the laptop-esque hinge, you can adjust the angle of the iPad to pretty much any angle imaginable, up to 135 degrees, which is usually more than most users need anyway.
Of course, a keyboard case like this does add over twice the thickness of the iPad mini and adds a bit of weight, but it's still much more portable than a laptop would ever be.
The Slim Book iPad mini keyboard case can be bought on Zagg's website for $119.

Do I need a converter to charge the keyboard in Italy?

I purchased a Zagg Ruggedbook keyboard cover. I am on my third case now. Every time that it gets any where near water the keyboard dies. I do not recommend this for anyone.
