‘Dirmi’ (from ‘Dire’) means ‘say’ (to me) and can be used in any context so it’s safe to just use this when you are in doubt while ‘Raccontarmi’ (from ‘Raccontare’) means ‘tell’ (me) and it’s used when it’s about a story, or something a person did in the past, like ‘Raccontami cosa hai fatto ieri’ which means ‘Tell me what you did yesterday’ or ‘Raccontami una bella storia’ which means ‘Tell me a nice story’. Even in these 2 cases (story and past actions), ‘Dire’ can be used so you wouldn’t have to struggle too much with ‘Raccontare’:)
