>(setq frame-title-format "%S: %f") ; show path along with file name
>(load "c:/Programmi/Emacs/ess-5.2.2/lisp/ess-site.el")
>(require 'ess-site) ; load ess

I think you should add the path to the directory, not the file:
>Add the line
>(load "/PATH/ess-site")

Try this:
(load "c:/Programmi/Emacs/ess-5.2.2/lisp/ess-site")
(load "c:/Programmi/Emacs/ess-5.2.2/lisp/ess")
Not this:
(load "c:/Programmi/Emacs/ess-5.2.2/lisp/ess-site.el")

(I use Xemacs and for me ess-site.el is in ..\lisp\ess\)
