Why I can't specify the house number when I search a destination on the Italy map? this is very disabling when the street is very long.

What "italy map"? Can you provide us a link? And what address are you searching for? You have to give us more information.

Thanks for your answer Italy map: Italia OSM version 44-201511230 The problem happened a few monts ago. Suddenly after a map update when i serch any address i can specify the country, the city, the street but the application offers none house number. I can choice only "any". So the navigator takes me to the top of the road. If the road is short this is not a problem. But in Rome there are roads very long with thousand of house nombers. And this is a problem. Ask me if you need other specifications. Thanks

That's still not quite clear. Where did you get this map? Which application/device are you using? OpenStreetMap is mainly just a database. There are tons of different OSM-based applications available, each of them doing things slightly different.

Ok sorry, I'm using "Map Factor Navigator Free" on my Samsung I9070 and i download maps simply clicking on "manage maps"on the main screen of "Map Factor Navigator Free". If you confirm that the "Italia OSM version 44-201511230" contains correctly the house numbers then probably it's a problem of "Map Factor Navigator Free". Thanks

This sounds indeed like a bug of Map Factor Navigator Free if searching for an house number suddenly stops working after an update. It still works with Nominatim, see for example Piazza Domenicani 31, Bolzano.
