Angry encoding and conversion failure

I have several books in .txt format with Western (Mac OS Roman) encoding.
Upon conversion with Calibre in any available formats (epub, mobi, azw3, txt ...) the italian accented letters, such as ˛, Ú, Ŕ, ¨, Ó are converted to strange symbols and are not readable when sent to my Kindle device.
I have tried to save my original files with UTF-8 encoding with no success. I used UTF-8, cp1252 and many more encoding options for producing output. No success. Any suggestions?
Thanks

The font set requested by your book may not (no longer: subsetted incorrectly) contain those characters.

When I'm editing the book with any editor on the Mac, using any font family, the accented letters show correctly up on the PC screen and are printed correctly on paper. Something goes wrong during conversion and the accented letters are substituted by strange characters when I'm reading the book with Kindle.
So, what?
