Play c2-c3 in preparation for the central advance d2-d4. Develop other pieces rapidly. If Black accepts, White can follow up with c3 and d4 to open up the center and also opens diagonals that allow moves such as Ba3 or Qb3. These moves prevent Black from castling kingside and threaten the weak f7-pawn respectively. If Black declines the Evans Gambit not a good option , Whites b4-pawn gains space on the queenside, and White can follow up with a4 later to take up more space.

In the Giuoco Pianissimo , White aims for a slow buildup deferring d4 until it can be set up. By avoiding an immediate confrontation in the center, White prevents the early release of tension through exchanges and enters a maneuvering game.

Much prefer the 2 knights or scotch or vienna. Anyway none of these games are just about attacking f7, theres a lot of stuff going on. When I said that the Italian Game is slow manouvering, I meant that in a Giuoco Pianissimo line all that happens is simple development and a few trades, while in the Ruy there is a lot of strategy and tactics to be aware of, and play is not just straight out development but attack and defense of the key e5 pawn. Not enough people do that. Theres really a lot more going on in openings than the cliche plans people are used to, and trying playable sidelines liek this can, at the very least, help you to understand those under-the-surface possiiblities which can lead to better play even in the mainlines. I kinda wish you explained mroe that your general idea with Qc2 is.
