I can create a 13 digits ISBN barcode, but the last number on the top 
is different from the last number down.
Looking a new italian book, I have seen the 2 ISBN are the same. So, I 
can't create the same 13 digits ISBN code for both position...

12 or 13 digits with dashes. The legacy ISBN-10 format accepts 9 or 10
digits with dashes, but this standard was depreciated for public use 
1st January 2007. (Note: To convert an old ISBN-10 to a new ISBN-13, 
978- to the first 9 digits, e.g. 1-56592-479-7 -> 978-1-56592-479. The 
check-digit will be calculated automatically.)
