You're right: the tutorial I was following was dealing with GLI. In my
collection I'm only using images and no text so I needed to create some
metadata to be able to organize them: so I automatically create the
.item files using some data provided to me about the directory contents
and in the .item files I'm creating the metadata like so:

<Subject and Keywords>Disegni, dipinti e fotografie|Disegni e quadri|Disegni

then in my collect.cfg I have:

classify Hierarchy -metadata "ex.Subject and Keywords" -buttonname
Classifiche -separator [|] -sort dc.Title

This setup seems to work fine. But if I'm understanding correctly,
you're saying that in my .item file I shouldn't have the spaces?

Thanks for the the information.
