They will make exceptions for only a few - if you have an ancestor's original naturalization certificate, for example, they will make a photocopy and return the original.
In particular, the apostiled documents will not only be kept, they will actually be forwarded to your ancestral comune in Italy for registration there (that's why they need to be translated into Italian).
As John said the consulate can as custodian make an official copy to replace the original document and certify that the copy is authentic. This is the usual format used by most authorities but can be discretionary if he/she woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day. =Peter=
