Default Medical Diploma issue

I am a Medical School Graduate (UniversitÓ degli Studi di Firenze - Scuola di Scienze della Salute Umana, Florence ITALY) and I am planning to apply for the USMLE STEP 1 exam.
I have just learned from the 2016 Bulletin that, as my medical diploma has not been issued yet, I need to send "a letter from my medical school that confirms I graduated, have met all requirements to receive my medical diploma, and states the date my medical diploma will be issued". The problem is that my Italian university does not provide any information about the precise date for the release of the official medical diploma. This applies to all medical graduates at the University of Florence. Experience tells that it may take up to 10 months from the date of graduation. I have already received a preliminary document that certifies the fact, the date and the grade of my graduation. This preliminary document provides more detailed information than the not yet release official Medical Diploma. To sum it up: the only information missing remains the exact date of the release of the final document (Medical Diploma).
Therefore I would like to ask for your advise how to best proceed with my application.

Thank You
