As far as I can tell, if plain is configured for babel (tha is what i- 
Installer's TeX does) then the following should work

\input italian.sty % Yes a .sty, even for plain tex...

blah blah  blah


It will complain if the italian hyphenation patterns were not loaded  
at the configuration stage... The same will work for any language  
recoginzed by babel.
