According to T113148 a Phabricator admin can change an email address, perhaps this is the desired action?

Yep, then a phab admin just needs to change the .com tld to .it (so we don't need to publicize the relevant address).

It is not that Phab admins could change a user's email address.

In T113148 it was done by directly editing the database I assume.
An admin with sufficient rights could delete the Phabricator user @Buggia (as there was no user activity yet) so the user can re-register again for Phab now (I don't seem to have the rights for sudo ./bin/remove/destroy @Buggia on iridium).
