Help with cap code please

Postby gennattasio » 12 Mar 2008, 00:59

The Address for Archivo di Stato di Messina is listed as:
Via 24 Maggio isol. 291, n.18
98122 Messina
The cap code comes up as 98100 on various websites. Is 98122 or 98100 the correct cap code?
Thanks for any assistance.

98100 is the generic code for Messina
98122 identifies smaller portion of the town, which includes Via 24 Maggio.

You should use 98122 however nobody will shoot you if you use the generic code and the letter will be delivered in any case.
