Can anybody tell me if is possible put a periodic alarm/reminder (last month day, for example) in a evernote note?

No - Notes have a single reminder date field; there's no recurring periodic option.

A work-around is to reset the reminder date when marked done.  
This can be automated with third party Filterize; I use a script on my Mac.  Tags are used to specify the recurrence period

My personal solution:

Go to the note

Create an external link through the share-process

Send this link to my ToDo-Manager, in my case Things 3 (Mac/iOS only)

This creates a new item in my ToDo-list. There I can set recurring reminders, Due-Dates, etc. By clicking on the link, the EN-note with the content will open automatically. Any good ToDo-Manager will do a much better job in this, and you have all reminders in one place.

Evernote is my "ToDo-Manager".  
It is adequate for simple task management; but I still have to work around the periodic reminders.

>>Any good ToDo-Manager will do a much better job in this, and you have all reminders in one place.

I use Apple Reminders/Calendar for alarms (single/periodic), and include in-app links to Evernote Notes.  
These built-in apps have much better notification features.

So my data is in three places 😕
- Evernote Reminders ensure my tasks get completed.
- Apple Calendar ensures I attend events
- Apple Reminders ensure I follow up asap for time critical reminders
