What we use after cuando to express a future intention is the Present Subjunctive. All the examples in the lesson that want to express a future intention have the present subjunctive. It may sound strange because it doesn't happen in English. In English in both cases, facts and future intentions with cuando, are expressed in the same way:
"When I go to Italy I will visit Rome."(future intention)
"When I go to Italy I visit Rome."(fact, everytime you go to Italy. It does happen)
We would use "Cuando vaya..." in the first example, but would use "Cuando voy..." in the second.
I hope it helps.
Thanks for your question.
I just have trouble with the imperativ:
When you go to Italy, visit Rome! (future intention)
I didnt understand from the text that this is a future intention, as it is not a future time.
