    Hi Tony,

    Geographic area codes in Italy start with zero. It is my belief that you, for some reason dropped this digit. In short try dialing 011 39 0974 935 ???.

    I want to add more information here for there is some confusion when dialing Italy landlines. Most countries that have telephone numbers starting with zero use this digit as a Trunk Code and for domestic calls only. When calling the number from abroad the starting zero must be dropped. However, Italy is an exception to this rule – this country uses geographical area codes that integrate 0 as the starting digit. Example: area code for Rome is 06 and when dialing Rome from the US for example you will enter: 011 + 39 + 06 + local number.
