The preposition to has a lot of translations in Italian. This depends on its funcion and its meaning.
To is translated with di when it works as connective between an infinitive and another verb. In English, this construction is formed by -ing forms or to + infinitive. Take a look at the following examples.
To is translated with a when it indicates the destination or a direction. But careful, only with places and cities!
A can be translated with to also when it works as connective between an infinite and a verb that expresses the beginning of an action. In English, this construction is formed by -ing forms or to + infinitive.
The preposition a in Italian introduces also the indirect object complement. In English, it matches to to or it is just omitted.
Da means to in several contexts. The simplest to understand is meaning directions. We use da when the destination is a person, a family, or a pronoun.
Da matches also to to when is used in Italian to indicate a correlation. This happens only when it is followed by an infinitive.
We use da also after an indefinite noun with the following structure: indefinite noun + da + infinitive verb. English works in the same way.
In Italian, in means to when indicating a direction or a destination which is a country, big islands or regions, streets, and nouns of places or shops ending in -ia (and also a few exceptions more).
With verbs like transform and convert.
To means per when it indicates a destination, but only when the contexts express clearly motion.
Also, per is used a lot to indicate a purpose or an aim.
