Hi Filippo,

Here's an easy solution for the Mac and Unix:

answer folder "Select  the default folder..."
-- I choose, e.g., "C:/Documents and Settings/Filippo/Documenti"
if it is not empty then
	 set the defaultFolder to it
  put the defaultfolder into df
  put "/" after df
	 put df -- to check it

	answer file "Select the file..." with df
end if

parameter applies only to Mac OS and Unix systems. On Windows systems, 
this parameter has no effect."

Since your example indicated a windows system, this may not be too
