Ok so I'm not 100% sure but have a look in the engine bay behind the engine (maybe even from below) search for small rubber grommits on the fire wall iirc there should be one near the drivers side footwell somewhere, I fitted the power cable for mine inside the inner arch liner then into the car via the car to door loom then up the side to the boot there may be other options that somebody can help you with as I own a sei not a cinq

On my cinq, to get the power from the battery to the amp, I ran the cable through a small hole on the passenger side, behind the cardboardy stuff in the engine bay (dont know what its actually called), then it come out behind the dash which meant needing 3 arms to feed it through, grab from under the carpet in the passenger foot well and also trying to find it behind the speaker thats in the dash, then you can take out the plastic strips that run where the doors go, these just unclip then run it under the rear seats and into the boot, then do the same for the RCA wires and the remote wire but they come out from behind the stereo which is a lot easier

Edit, then just follow this guide to connect everything up https://www.fiatforum.com/ice-guides/244024-how-wire-subwoofer-amplifier-fiat-punto.html

Blue wire on the back of the cd player some are blue and white either that or bridge the +ve from the anp to the remote ONLY TEMP tho as it will leave the amp on constantly even with cd player off and will drain ur battery eventually :)
