Danilo Bernasconi, 33, broke the previous record of 48 hours and 13 minutes set by Allen Sherrod in Florida two years ago.
Bernasconi set the record in the northern Italian Lake Como.
"I'm a bit 'dazed, it was really hard," he said.
Bernasconi is a sub instructor and runs a store for diving equipment in the northern town of Bizzarone.
