I changed language on the iPad3 from english to italian, but I noticed that a few things remain in english. For instance, day and time in locked screen, as well as in the calendar. Is there a way to fix it?

What do you mean by day and time? Names of days like Monday, Tuesday…? – duci9y Aug 26 '12 at 11:09

Did you try to change the Region Format settings in Settings > General > International ?

International Settings on iPhone

You should be able to change it to Italian.

Note : this is an iPhone capture but it is exactly on the same place on the iPad. It is easier to put an iPhone capture in a post.
