Hi @Maurizio_Acquavella - You can create a numeric custom field and assign IDs to tasks manually - https://asana.com/guide/help/premium/custom-fields.
You can also add task row numbers to projects to make it easier to say “Check out row #32”, though these numbers only show up on the project (kind of like Excel row #s). To enable task row numbers, go to your Profile Settings > Display tab - https://asana.com/guide/help/fundamentals/settings
