Hi Vincenzo,

It has nothing to do with drivers :) Pressure sensitivity in GIMP 2.8
for Windows is simply broken. Fixing it would involve a lot of work on
an underlying technology that is pretty much obsolete by now. A proper
fix will be released as part of GIMP 3.0, but it's way in the future
(no estimations at this time).

I'm afraid, right now you have to downgrade to GIMP 2.6 on Windows, if
pressure sensitivity is crucial for your work.
