permesso di soggiorno is under renewal process, UK visa

Hi, I am a Turkish person and I am living in Italy, Milan.
My stay permit had expired so I applied for renewal and now I have ricevuta on hand.
I want to go to London for a business trip.
Can I apply for the UK visa with only ricevuta?
Or can I get an provisional stay permit from Questura di Milano - Ufficio Immigrazione?

I appreciate any help!
Thanks

An Italian stay permit has absolutely no bearing on getting a UK visa.

but the thing is I am a Turkish citizen and I am applying for UK visa from Italy. One of the required document is the residence permit. Are you sure that it is not necessary?

Ahh yes, you must provide proof of legal residence in Italy, my error.  If you have a copy of your previous (expired) residence permit and the receipt, that should be acceptable.

Thank you , I hope so.

hello . I would like to advise you a thing from my personal experience. So please be careful.
I was in your similar situation last year. My Italian residence permit was expired and I had a applied for the renewal. I applied for the UK visa with my expired residence permit and provided them the ricevuta.
They refused my application and they had concerns about my return to Italy.
So i could suggest you to wait till you get your permesso di soggiorno
