What are the safest ways to send money to Italy

I need to send money to Sicily. In the past, I found that sending cash doesn't always get there. Wire transfers are an option, but they are expensive, especially for small amounts of cash. Are there any other safe options to use to send money to Sicily?

Most Italian Comunes I have dealt with haven't even heard of Paypal although it doesn't exist here. I have sent cash (including coins) many times without a problem.
