I worked in NYC on a 'B1 in lieu of H1B' visa for 6 months, I received my income from an Italian company, and have no W-2. How to report correctly?

Because the work is performed in the US, I believe I have to report it as US source income, but I have no W-2 though..

I was on a J1 visa going until February 2016, and then switched to 'B1 in lieu of H1B' for another company starting March 2016 - for six months

So, did you stay in US from March - December in 2016 on the H-1 visa ?

No, March - August 2016 on 'B1 in lieu of H1B'. For tax purposes I'm a resident, following the substantial presence test. I'm pretty sure I have to consider my income on this visa as US source income, but because I don't have a W-2, I don't know if this created problems for the company or not.

great, thank you! And for the State return I also include these wages under 'Your Wages Summary' right?, because it does not automatically transfer from my federal to state return for some reason.

Yes, the information entered from federal will be automatically transferred to the state section.  However, you do need to go through the state tax section to make sure all the questions including credits and deductions related are covered.
