If you mean a literal “&”, none of the proposed forms is meaningful. In an informal communication, you'd use the first name followed, if necessary, by e famiglia. For instance: (Saluti da) Mario e famiglia. In a formal context, you might use famiglia followed by the family name: (Sentite condoglianze), famiglia Rossi.


It's pretty unusual and impolite, and also shows an ignorance of at least one of the functions of language. As for which way to close a conversations, friends or close colleagues will use a normal Ciao (there is a recent custom of closing a phone call with a sequence of generally three ciaos). People who are in less intimate relation would say Arrivederci (...


It is not normal to sbattere/chiudere/riattaccare il telefono in faccia (hanging up a phone call) nor andarsene alla chetichella/all'inglese (slipping away quietly without saying goodbye).

You can find on Treccani's appellativi e epiteti [prontuario] a list of proper forms for most of ecclesiastics and their abbravistions. For a bishop: (Sua) Eccellenza (S.
