Nov 17 '15 at 14:49 comment added Relaxed Another reason behind the distinction is that residence permits and long-stay visas weren't originally equivalent, it has been added to the regulation/agreement later. Incidentally, article 2(15) is an obvious kludge, redefining “residence permit” as covering residence permits and visas.
Nov 17 '15 at 14:46 comment added Relaxed @KayJay They are only equivalent as far as the Schengen regulations are concerned (cf. article 2(15) of the Schengen Borders code). The main reason you need to apply for a permit is that most countries do not issue regular visas from within their own territory. The logic is that the long-stay visa replaces the first permit and that you need a proper permit after that. But some countries (e.g. Finland) directly issue a permit, thus making the visa completely unnecessary.
Nov 17 '15 at 14:23 comment added KayJay @Relaxed I had no intention of being dismissive! I apologize if my tone came across that way. The answers didn't seem specific enough; the first sentence said the visa is equivalent to the permit, but that doesn't explicitly address the ability to leave (and re-enter) Italy using just the visa alone (i.e. if they were truly equivalent, why the need to even apply for a permit?). The question also then had an edit where the asker had to clarify that he was worried about re-entering Italy specifically, not about entering Croatia. In any case - we are digressing here; I'm sure you agree :)
Nov 17 '15 at 13:22 comment added Relaxed @KayJay No need to be dismissive, the answer (no quote) answers both questions. The first sentence covers Spain and the rest Croatia (and the original question did not suggest in any way that the rules for Croatia were already known).
Nov 17 '15 at 11:07 comment added KayJay True, but the question I linked doesn't have an actual answer. The 'answers' in there just go in detail about how the visa can be used to enter Croatia, which wasn't what the question asked, and which was already known.

Nov 17 '15 at 10:42 comment added CMaster I don't see how your question differs from the one you have linked (I mean sure, you say Italy rather than Spain, but as its all under the same rules, the same answers should suffice)
