WARNING: remember that you must know what you are doing, when you use low
level functions!

Whatever you wrote in the ellipses (...), you are giving to the function
"mpn_get_str" the address of the variable "indirizzo". That variable is of
type "mp_limb_t", therefor it can contain at most one limb. It will work
if and only if lunghezza==1.

To be honest, I do not remember if there is a documented way to access the
mpn_t underlying an mpz_t. You may look at the "Internal" chapter of the
manual at , but it
warns: "internals described here may change in future GMP releases".
