Welcome to the forum and the world of FIAT 500L ownership.

As to the oil choice, personally I always use the exact spec. as stated by the manufacturer in case they ever wanted to find any reason to wriggle out of a warranty claim on some serious fault with the engine.

OK they may never discover the wrong spec. has been used and it's a possibly unlikely scenario but I don't like giving any body 'wriggle room' if I can avoid it.
