I create a blank page using

\newcommand\blankpage{ %comando pagina vuota

Here it is one my page:


        \emph{Stay hungry, \\
        stay foolish. \\}
        Steve Jobs, Stanford University, 2005

Unfortunately adding \blankpage after that page, it doesn't work

Your \blankpage only contains one \newpage, i.e. the leading \null is put on the current page. It only works as expected if a page break occurred already direct beforehand. To make it always work you need to add a \newpage at the beginning. Should there be already be a page break, this \newpage will be ignored, so you don't get two extra pages.

\newcommand\blankpage{% comando pagina vuota
