Collections are one of the three main features used to organize and maintain your Zotero library.
They are used to logically organize your Zotero entries into "folders" and "sub-folders," and you can set them up using any scheme that works for you. Some people create collections according to topics and sub-topics; others use them to divide material by course or semester.
An Zotero entry can be a member of more than one collection.
The term "items" here refers to two things: bibliographic entries that have been added to your Zotero library, and attachments that may be connected with those items (for example: PDF files, web snapshots, images, and notes). This is because many of the things that you can do with bibliographic entries, such as adding tags, can also be done to attachments to entries.
