I grow mine in living Sphagnum standing in 50mm of water all summer in a greenhouse in the UK. It survives the winter, keeping it just damp, with no further protection in the greenhouse and we are a similar hardiness zone, if a little cooler.

It is native to Brazil at all sorts of altitudes, so  I would immagine in Italy you shouldn't have  too many problems.

 

Cheers

Steve

Mine is in just long fibered sphag moss. I keep the water level nearly to the top all year.
