Hi, Gianluigi

Don't know if it matters, but which file are you editing? /etc/crontab?

It seems to me it's much better to add a new file in any of these 
folders, depending on your needs:

/etc/cron/hourly , etc

Also, be sure you left no spaces or blank lines at the beginning of your 
cron file, being or not comments as #my cron file

If none of the above works for you, try to add the system path above 
your cron command:

PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin: and so on.

Hope it helps, regards!
