When I try to use the getosm.py script, it shows the message : "At least one of 'bbox' and 'area' and 'polygon' has to be set" and I don't know why. I'm using that because I want to get a big area.

Can you show us the exact command that you type? It seems like you are not specifying a required argument

While escada is certainly correct, it doesn't really matter: you will not be successful in directly downloading a "large" area and you shouldn't try to work around the size limitations.

You either need to download a planet dump and extract the area in question, or use pre-defined extracts or an extract service: http://planet.openstreetmap.org/ has links to some of the providers.
