    1i) quanto dista il punto X dal punto Y ?
    1e) How far away is point X from point Y ?
    /dista/ is a verbal voice from the verb /distare/; this verb is usually only used
    in the third person (sing. and plural); /il punto 'X' / is the subject of the proposition !

    Another possibility:
    2i) Quanta distanza c'e` dal punto X al punto Y ?
    2e) How much distance is there from point X to point Y ?

    I hope this cleared your question.

    is a different interpretation. If you say "dal" you are meaning that this "point" is not X and the subject in in another place..
    The sentence: quanto dista il punto X dal punto Y? meaning that X is a point and Y is another one, and the question is: how long from the point X to the point Y?
