Dwarf Italian Cypress?

Is there any tree that is a dwarf and looks like an Italian cypress, but with a yellow or lime-green color variation? I'm trying to find a good plant that suggests a Tuscan theme, that will be in two large pots at the entrance to a small Tuscan garden.

Arborvitae (genus Thuja) has several species and varieties that can be sheared. There are some that are yellow-green or golden; T. orientalis 'Minima Glauca' is blue-green. Some are naturally columnar; some are dwarfs.
If you choose one that requires shearing, do it lightly and frequently instead of heavily and infrequently. As with all conifers, if you make a cut in a branch without leaving any live growth, that branch will likely die.
