If you want to go to Italy, you apply to Italy. If you want to visit for business, apply for a business visa.
Don't try to get around visa requirements, or you could find you have a lifetime ban.
Once you have been rejected your name is inserted on a database shared to Shengen members and maybe you get a stamp on your passport as visa rejected.

Now I want to go for tourism but I don’t want to get rejected again from the same embassy
That’s why I think I should apply from France
Many embassies wiil automatically reject visa application when they know another did
