What is your definition of mm_domains?

The list above should probably also include -confirm, -subscribe and

There should be

domainlist mm_domains=aips.it

or maybe

domainlist mm_domains=aips.it:other.list.domain:...

in your configuration. Your OP showed your list mail was using the
transport 'address_pipe', not 'mailman_transport'. If your
mailman_router is first and you are still seeing the same errors with
the address_pipe transport, some condition in your mailman_router is
not being met. Either, your mm_domains domain list does not include
your list domain(s) or your MAILMAN_LISTCHK macro doesn't expand to
the correct /path/to/lists/LISTNAME/config.pck.

Note that if you installed Mailman from a RedHat/CentOS rpm, most
examples on the web won't work because the mail wrapper mail/mailman
and the lists/ directory are not in the same MM_HOME directory. I.e.
the wrapper is /usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman and the list directory is
