Italian term or phrase: Per conoscenza
In lettere commerciali, eccetera: mittente, destinatario e... per conoscenza: ridicolo ma non ho ancora trovato il modo vero e soddisfacente!

"information copy" or "for your information" (FYI)
Explanation:
Either of these phrases, and the abbreviation "FYI" (on the copy sent to the individual in question), would be perfectly fine.

FYI, The English abbreviation "cc:" has two roots: first, the abbreviation of "carbon copy," which dates from the time when typists actually produced multiple copies of a letter, using a manual or electric typewriter and sheets of carbon paper, and, second, the Latin plural formation of "copy," which consists simply of duplicating the first letter ("c"). (Another common example of this formation in English is "pp." ("pages").)

Cheers, HC

"BCC" or "CC"


Explanation:
Si vedono anche negli indirizzi dei messaggi elettronici, per es. vedi un tipico messaggio di Hotmail. Indicano chi altri riceverà quella lettera. CC forse vuol dire "carbon copy".

Ciao e spero di aver capito bene

c.c.


Explanation:
Mattia ha ragione; b.c. pero' e' blind copy e non compare sull'originale; si mette soltanto sulla copia in questione. anche nel mio caso e' l'esperienza di lavoro in ufficio che mi suggerisce la risposta.
buon lavoro
