Thanks everybody for their help again. In an evil scheme to piss us off DHL & the Italian Post have managed to screw up one of the simplest tasks (incidently one which is at the core of their business model) and lost the package containing our warm winter clothes that we sent poste restante to Modena. I've spent all day toady trying to track a package that has apparantly been delivered to somebody or something named "KWOFIE" but neither DHL nor the poste know who, what or where that is. Luckily enough it's quite warm right now, with around 0-5°C on the Brenner and no snow in sight, we are thus putting on all the layers of summer clothing that we have. Wish us luck
Oh, and while we're at it: the search on their website (the link provided above) is worthless - the post office I had located in Modena, the only one according to the search, doesn't exist anymore. It moved around the corner. Four years ago. And it doesn't even do parcels. The other nine post offices in Modena do, however.
