I think mixing the centerpieces is fine, as long as you do it evenly… half tall, half shorter.  Also… I think votives would look better than the tapers and I’d go with plain white ones.  Red tapers seems a bit Christmasy to me.

That being said… I don’t think the callas fit the Italian theme very well.  I’d go with the taller centerpieces with red flowers, and for the shorter ones I’d do a more casual mix of sunflowers, red roses and either a purple flower or even purple grapes mixed in.  Votives with all the centerpieces.  That would bring in an Italian/Tuscan/Romantic style to your tables.  

Good luck!

@thisorderistall:  Are you going to buy more of those vases to use for the other centerpieces?

You could so something simple like this with the callas

I think it would add continuity to your decor if you used similar flowers from your tall centerpieces, also in a pomander/round shape for the other half of your tables and then surround that pomander with the calla lilies. They would look something like this (sorry for the horrible photoshop work):

You probably don’t even need another vase, just wire the callas together. Here’s the   original view of the calla lilies:
