Thanks to Matthew Malthouse and John W Baxter, the solution is to use
the site password (I know it).

The trick is that the admin Web page asks you for the "Current
password" of the list and, since I do not know it, I had to give the
present SITE password. Then, in the "New password" field, I indicate
the new LIST password. Confusing but it works ("Thou can use the site
password each time the list password is asked")
