Problems with usart comunication with interrupts

I'm trying so hard to send and receive data through USART1 of my STM32. I'm using STM32VL_Discovery board, Modbus as communication bus with RS485 interface (I connect my micro to the bus through a MAX232 and SP3485, I personally checked all signals so I'm sure every bit and every word are well coded) and Atollic TrueStudio to develop my application. I succeded in sending from micro to my pc at other end of the bus either single characters or a string. 

My problem is the following: since I would like to implement communication in Modbus protocol, I'd like my micro to receive a request frame from my pc and give a response back so I've tryed to implement a simple interrupt-based system. I've seen some tutorials searching in the web, but nothing seems to work properly. It seems to be an interrupt related problem, but I'm not able to find where is situated my fault. I'm attaching my files, hoping someone can help me.

When I'm seeing result on my Terminal, it doesn't print word CIAO but sometimes CI, sometimes II, sometimes IIIO or similar.

Note: I'm using another channel (Pin 9 on GPIOC) to control an input of SP3485: this input is used to put this chip in receiving mode or in transmit mode. For this reason I use commands to put this channel to high value (transmission) or low value (reception).
