Okay so because you're not a citizen of an EU country, normally as a visitor you are allowed to stay for a maximum of 90 days in any 180 day period, unless you have a visa that gives you longer or residence.

Do you know what sort of visa your mom and you entered Italy on?

You should ask at an immigration office or check with the Russian embassy.

The biggest issue is if you are planning to rent an air B& B or any hotel room in Italy you may have an issue with being under 18. When my
Son went on a trip a few years ago with a friend also under 18, I had to contact the places in advance and mail a letter having complete responsibility for my son. It’s not easy to stay in hotels under 18.

I will be staying with a friend so that’s not an issue.
Also did your son have any issues coming back?
Like I was told that I need a consent for that has to be signed by a parent the day of the flight .but if my mom isn’t here with me,how can I leave the country ?
