It seems the reply path of your gmail settings is set by hacker as
dolomiticola at mail.com instead of dolomiticola at gmail.com
So first thing you do is go to settings-->account and locate that below
your gmail email ID there is reply mails to dolomiticola at mail.com so all
replies to your mails are going to him. locate edit at right of entry,
click edit and simply delete this fake reply email ID. Save, change your
password, logout and login with new password. It is likely that hacker has
deleted your addressbook (contacts). import them back if you have them
ready on your computer. In future always keep backup of contacts as csv
file on your computer for such occasions.
