    You need to contact your bank or look on a bank statement of yours and get your IBAN number. This should contain all he needs but you will need to give him your name, bank address, account details and bank code. Its very easy. Your local bank will know what you need to give if you call them.

    I can't use paypal or Skrill. Only bank transfer from Italian bank.
    Are you sure my bank will accept international transfer?

    By the way I would prefer not to link this transaction with my personal data. Strictly anonymous account to recieve the payment would be the best.

    Buy euro prepaid in BZWBK bank, register and give your friend accout number (not card number) in iban format. You can later withdraw the money using atm card or transfer further using paypal/skrill or other.

    Indeed they can - just give them your banks IBAN (or SWIFT, but more likely IBAN if it's Europe) code, and your account details, and the transfer will appear in 24-48hrs.

    He won't be able to initiate the bank transfer without your personal info. Ask your bank for your IBAN, Swift code, and Sort code.

    You will need to provide him with:

    1. Your name
    2. Your address
    3. Your bank's name
    4. Your bank's address
    5. IBAN
    6. Swift code
    7. Sort code

    If your bank account is in EUR, you can receive the money in EUR. If not, he'll have to send you the money in your local currency. For more info, you should contact your bank. I'm just advising based on my personal experience on quite a few international funds transfers.

    I'd contact your local bank and ask for the required details to receive the amount in EUR.
