Timing (belt) of..??
It doesn't start at all?
If it crancks, spray some start spray into the inlet, and see if it runs for a short time...
If it does run, no matter how bad, drive to the nearest ( Fiat) dealer, and have the ECU read.

disconnect the battery..for a few hours,

charge battery of you can,

then retry..may help reset something electronic,
crank engine in dark looking for stray sparks..that will help eliminate power issues,

as peter Says you MAY have cam timing issues..??
quite simple to check, look in Guides = punto,
