Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

An Italian public administration wants to generate data (as opendata) starting from a service tiles generated from OSM data. These tiles are released under CC-BY-NC. This public administration wants publish this new dataset by using the CC0 license.

It's possible, or the data must be released as ODbL?

please could you clarifiy: what is a "service tiles"? What should be published? A map (image)? What are the sources, only OSM data?

The short answer is that they will have to use ODbl as CC-BY-NC requires permission from the copyright owner. Since OSM data is "owned" by its contributors, who number in their thousands, that would be impossible. For more information see this page.
