I am Italian an electronic hobbyist.
In 20 years, with eBay sales, I have shipped more than 2500 packages around the world.
From what I have read on this topic I have understood that "the whole world is a country".
I sympathize with you but unfortunately we are helpless victims.
I use Poste Italiane to send, to receive from the USA I ask for USPS.
I rarely use private couriers, only with eBay with their "shipping manager" and if it's convenient.
In any case: Bomb-proof packaging !!!
