Heck, I don't know. I'd call it Apis mellifera
This post may help. Or not!

 
mellifera
Somehow I passed over that when browsing...
Looks good, too, as it is a little darker on the thorax where the Italian Bee is supposed to be the lightest, I guess...

Glad to help,even if indirectly.
There's a lot of variation in those bees.

 
variation - yes
We have a lot of different ones around our home, so maybe someone keeps hives nearby...
