My Alfa 147 was caught in the same storm; counted 87 dings, 49 of which are on the bonnet. American friends advise that sometimes, over a warm summer, some may just pop out; here's hoping. Even with PDR, this is totally uneconomical to remove (I can get a backstreet repaint for 600, with dings filled). So my best course will be to improve it a bit by getting a used silver bonnet (seem to be readily available for 60-80), improve the dozen or so dings on the front wings. The roof has got 2 dozen dents on it, but most of them you don't really notice all that much. The most noticeable are on the curved bit above the doors. For a PDR repair, will they have to drop the headlining, and its that going to cause problems??
