    Or they could simply keep the Japanese characters but make one of the leads white.

    Asking for a white lead is a pointless thing- and questionable. Something being set in the United States (or other countries) would be interested and I can see it fitting well. Regardless of race.

    Was Zoey in either original or dub part Italian? Or was it simply that she lived there and was fully Japanese?

    Google tells me the dub has her fully Japanese, but moved to Italy for a few years. Wikimon states this is the case for the JP version too.
