I think you should opt for a world map or gateway page where the user has
the choice. Otherwise, you simply tailor (or even worse -- redirect) users
based on location, which is something that cannot be changed and is not
their choice. Have a look at mac.com for example. If you are not a big
(PR8+) site, you probably have no justification for regionalisation.

Search engines might not notice that unless it's in the source. You might
want to contact Google et al. Be aware that redirection to an unrealted
site or a site that is not yours (e.g. www.mywebsite.it which is your site
in Italian) might be frowned upon.

Get a word from Google to make this move a safe one. Quite possibly they
would not reply though. I imagine that they loadthe advertisements through
re-directions (as do users) and link trades (like two academics making a
pact to cite one another).
