Att.: 0039 is the International Dialing Codes for Italy.

Att.: In Italy all landline numbers would begin with a 0 and mobile phone numbers with a 3.

Att.: I have verified that you can receive call ONLY if you are using Skype Phone Number services using the related number. You cannot receive calls directed to skype account (business): this because of a bug with the software skype vers. >= 6.1 .
