There are currently no flights between AMS and FCO. Neither KLM nor Alitalia, the two airlines operating this route, are currently operating it.

The KLM website suggests flights may start on Saturday, but I would not expect the route to come back for some time.

I would advise your friend to arrange something officially, rather than attempting to travel on spec. Do not just "turn up", nor attempt to "turn up". Make contact with the authorities who can determine where your friend is most needed, and where they can assist in getting her/him there.

Germany: Dresden

Italy: Bologna, Rome, Florence, Genoa, Milan, Naples, Turin and Venice

Nordics: Ålesund, Kristiansand, Linköping, Sandefjord and Växjö

Frankfurt (LH & AZ), Heathrow (AZ) and Brussels (AZ) appear to be the only non-Italian destinations with sporadic, infrequent service to/from FCO in the last few days.

Note also that there is currently an entry-ban for foreign nationals in operation across the Schengen zone.

Your friend, well-meaning as she/he may be, should not make any attempt to travel without having volunteered from their present location, and getting the necessary clearances.

Your friend may be better off, and be able to accomplish far more good, by volunteering in their present location, or somewhere closer to home. The US is currently in great need of such assistance.
