OXT is just an extension package format that LibreOffice inherited from 
OpenOffice.org. It's just a zip file with predefined internal 
file/folder hierarchy.

I guess the problem Sergio's friend is facing could be related to 
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66341 . Right now, LibO 
only supports ll-CC locale identifiers for dictionaries, and all other 
identifiers are ignored. If the language code used for that dialect is 
different (e.g. it-IT at Bari), that could be the issue you've stumbled 
upon here.
