This would be better suited for the gfoss.it mailing list.
I think this could be somewhat simplified associating CAP to administrative 
units (comuni) and linking to their centroids via postgis.
I agree that it could be useful for many in Italy, and the same approach could 
be used in other European States too.
All the best.
