Does anyone know how to contact Rivarossi directly either over :D the internet or by snail mail?

I would be surprised if you could.
Walthers of Milwaukee is the only authorized distributor of riv products.
If you are having a riv problem perhaps call the Walther's terminal hobby shop at 1-800-487-2467, Mike Fedderly, Parts & Warranty.

Should you want a riv product repaired, go to www.golfmanorhobbies.com
in Cinn Oh who is the authorozied repair station.

That Mike Fedderly's a good character. I had a problem some time back with a Walthers kit I bought missing a part. I phoned the number that the slip in the kit provided about missing parts, and talked to this gentleman. He found my part and sent it out while I was still on the phone with him. A week later, it arrived safe and sound. I'd recomment giving him a call.
"What was it the engines said?
Pilots touching, head to head,
half a world behind each back?
'They should have made this double track'"
