adress and sender like you do at any letter of this world.
example:

Archivio Diocesi di Trento
Piazza Fiera 2
38122 Trento
Italia
or
Archivio Diocesi di Trento
Piazza Fiera 2
I - 38122 Trento

you must not state a province. it is seen about the first 2 numbers in front of the postalcode. not usual in Europe : http://plz.italien-aktuell.info/
