The Brake switch from an Auto Parts Store is heavier duty.
part # ACCEL 181101

Not sure of availability in Italy, though.

When you replace it, move the brake line attachment lug to the inside of the frame rather than the outside where it is now mounted.

Pat,
The ACCEL switch will not fit the VRSCR (Brembo Brakes). Correct part is part no HD 72025-06.

You might also consider covering the switch and wires in some heat shielding material.
