is "Poligno area" a special case or just another language? Are you searching for a program or a webservice for your calculation? Should it be one-time only or automatic? Do you want a (OSM-based) map as basis to point-and-click your polygon? Could you please be more verbose?

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area#Area_formulas and use the formulas with the input data in meters.
