Firstly,

Are you a UK passport holder? 

If you are there is a whole set of rules and regulations about working in Spain.

Not just working in Spain but simply coming here to live.

Even if you are currently resident in Italy if a British citizen/passport holder you will have to go through the same visa application as any other British citizen and if you want to work then you will have to find a Spanish employer to sponsor you, no easy feat unless you have skills which cannot be sourced amongst Spanish or other EU citizens.

I have an Italian passport. I changed from British to Italian when the Brexit came in.

Spanish is as useful in Spain as Italian in Italy . In response to your question if you need to speak Spanish .

Hi 

Good luck with your move. My friend is Italian and has found it easy to learn Spanish so I am sure you will pick it up in no time. Spain is a very friendly country in the summer when the tourists are here there are lots of job opportunities. I hope you enjoy your move 😬
