Perhaps it might help to ask your question in your own language? It's not really clear what you're asking in English.

Can you provide me the percentual usage of OSM regarding POI information for each nation?

Ciao, vorrei sapere la percentuale di utilizzo di OSM per quanto riguarda i POI, suddivisa per nazione?

It is unclear what you mean by "percentage of use". We don't know how much OSM is "used" in the world because users do not report back to us. It is also unclear what a percentage is in that context - how many % of citizens use OSM? How many % of all map views is OSM? We can't know.

In case your question is about how many % of POIs are in OSM, and in case your question concerns Italy, you could use the "taginfo" instance at http://taginfo.hanskalabs.net/ (which seems to be broken at the time of writing) to learn how many POIs of a given type are in OSM; then compare to national statistics to get an idea of the percentage.

If the author refers to QA you might be interested in various scientific analysis about OSM coverage: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Research
