I went to Italy to visit my friend, right after finishing my university studies. (Here the important is the time when)
I was in Italy when they called me to inform me about the prize I’d won. (Here the importance is the place where I was)
I’ve been to Italy twice. (This past action is still true at the time you are speaking)
I hope it will be clear for you. Best regards.

I went to Italy = I rode to Italy.
I was in Italy = I visited Italy.
