Can anyone please tell me where I can found a 1-euro house in Italy? and what's the procedure to buy it?

Be careful. Read the fine print. These 'deals' usually involve a commitment to make the property livable. . . .

and what's the procedure to buy it?

probably first few steps would include deciding which of the towns are in a place you'd want to live, how much money you would be willing to spend (I don't say invest because it is unlikely you will ever get your money out) to make it livable for you, and read a number of the threads about the offers.

You will have to do your homework.

The first time I’d seen anything about €1 houses was on this RS Travel Forum, and it was about a bunch of them in a single town on Sicily. It seems that if there’s one €1 house, there are more close by, all needing renovation, and an isolated, maybe former town trying to be revitalized.

Is there a particular region in Italy that would be of most interest for acquiring your €1 home? Or is anywhere OK, as long as it’s Italy and the price hasn’t skyrocketed to €2?

Does this really exist? Actually, I'm a student there and wanna have a house to stay in at least till my studies. Will it work for me?

These exist, but they are not “move in ready.” In addition they come with qualifiers regarding renovations and a time frame in which they must be completed.

If you live there, do they not advertise in your town?
