Some years ago I had to write in APA style. It changed over the years but at
least it has a very detailed description. Here is a link to long quotations (in
contrast to what they call "short quotations")

Place direct quotations that are 40 words, or longer, in a free-standing block
of typewritten lines, and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new
line, indented 1/2 inch from the left margin, i.e., in the same place you would
begin a new paragraph. Type the entire quotation on the new margin, and indent
the first line of any subsequent paragraph within the quotation 1/2 inch from
the new margin. Maintain double-spacing throughout. The parenthetical citation
should come after the closing punctuation mark.

Most likly there are other styles that demand italic formatting for quotations.
