US Citizen living in Italy, no Visa...questions?

Here's the whole story: on October 11th I went to Italy to travel a bit and stay with friends. Also my boyfriend lives there. On January 10th I came back to the States for a death in the family. I would like to go back to Italy January 23rd, but I'm worried that they won't let me back in because I was already there for nearly 3 months and I don't have a Visa. I can't really get a Visa, because I'm just bumming around, with no real job, living with my friends and boyfriend. I'm aware of the 90 per 180 rule, so I'm nervous.
How likely is it that they'll stop me at the border? And if they do, what's the worst that could happen? Could I be banned for a long time?

Thank you

You have to stay out for for 90 days before you go back in and stay for any length of time.

Apply for a visa it shouldn't be that hard to get one.
