I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The general syntax is: $('.selector', 'context'); So, target '.quantity-adder' (the selector) within the closest('.qty') (the context):
$('.quantity-adder', $('button:contains("Avvisami quando questo articolo diventa disponibile")').closest('.qty') ) .hide();

Excellent! It works... however since I wasn't expecting the code to be in this format (selector/context), I would like to ask you how I could convert this string in the jquery each format as I have several similar cases on the same page.

Try:
    $('button:contains("Avvisami quando questo articolo diventa disponibile")').each(function(){
       $('.quantity-adder', $(this).closest('.qty') ).hide();
    });
