Can I get an FAA Class 1 medical if I don't have binocular vision?
I live in Italy and for EASA I can't get my first class medical certificate to be a pilot. But can I get at least FAA 1 class to be a pilot in USA?

Yes, with a special issuance, and provided you meet the criteria here you can get an FAA class 1 medical with monocular vision.
An applicant will be considered monocular when there is only one eye or when the best corrected distant visual acuity in the poorer eye is no better than 20/200. An individual with one eye, or effective visual acuity equivalent to monocular, may be considered for medical certification, any class, through the special issuance section of part 67 (14 CFR 67.401).
