To be honest, you can probably shoot even higher given your profile.
What European schools really value in candidates is international experience - and you seem to have a lot of it. You're bi-cultural (I assume by "Italian American" you mean you're first generation Italian), you went to university abroad, you speak multiple languages, and your work experience is relatively unique (construction/architecture).
If you want to work in finance in Europe, not sure why you want to avoid the UK schools because London is where the vast majority of post-MBA finance jobs will be (London is the financial hub for Europe after all) - it's sort of like saying that you want to avoid the NY-area schools but want to work in finance in the US.
In any case, if you really have a real aversion to English pubs, their football clubs, rainy weather, etc. then the schools outside of Europe you may want to focus on INSEAD in addition to the schools you mentioned.
You have a well-rounded background, so there isn't anything you should change per se -- just do the best you can on the GMAT, and since you're relatively young for Euro schools you have time - you can apply this upcoming year and worst case is you don't get into the ones you want - and reapply the following year without being too old.
