I don't know if this works for citizens outside of the European Union, but you can try. This is how you obtain a Codice Fiscale.
Go to http://www.comuni.it/servizi/codfisc/ and fill in the form.
Cognome=surname Nome=First name Sesso=Sex Data di nascita=Date of birth Giorno=day Mese=month Anno=year Comune di nascita=fill in your country not place of birth
Click on calcolo il codice fiscale and if all goes well you should have a number and can print out the card.
The code is taking some of your last name and first name letters, date of birth and sex plus an additional letter.
