Thanks both for your comments Flyingveepixie- yes I understand the need for ventilation. The eaves in our Italian house are not open (like in UK) - I suspect the ventilation is in the gaps between the roof tiles! Generally I agree it is often easier to buy stuff in the UK and take it over - but loft insulation is pretty bulky... Gala Placidia - thanks for the link, this shows just what I want to do under "rockwool". I found a similar description on the Leroy Merlin site though they do not seem to sell the "isolante" -maybe it is seasonal and i need to try again in October.

Sorry if this has been answered before but is there any problem with putting in glass fibre type loft insulation as used in the UK? I have never seen it for sale in DIY stores in ItalyI guess that with the smaller roof pitch here it will be tricky to get right into the corners but is there anything else?
