There is only one Alitalia flight from Buenos Aires to Italy on December 29 and this flight is to Rome Fiumicino. There are three weekly flights from Buenos Aires to both Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino and they are logically not operated on the same days. BTW, this flight to Rom is fully booked in Economy Class
There is also only one El Al flight on December 30 from Rome Fiumicino to Tel Aviv Ben Gurion, so I am quite sure you will be travelling on those flights. However, equipment changes always happen ...

Alitalia operates a daily flight from MXP to TLV and another daily FCO-TLV both with A321 (these flights stop at LCA on the way to TLV for crew change; effective OCT02).
El Al flies 5 times a week to MXP and FCO (on winter), these flights are operated with anything from 73G to 762 at most cases, with the option for a 777 or 744 at the 'right' occasions.
AZ's MXP-TLV flight is a morning flight which lands at TLV daily around 16:00.
No codeshare between LY and AZ, nor commercial agreements.
To EZE from TLV, LY offers its pax to fly to MAD on LY and connect to IB on a special fare. IB and LY do codeshare and have a commercial agreement for South-American flights sectors.

Ouch, why stop at two Italian airports? Fiumicino is already enough of a pain in the ass to transit in. Furthermore I wouldn't be surprised if you experience luggage delays at FCO/MXP because they can totally forget to take your luggage out, and passenger assistance has to make a few calls to the baggage handlers.
