Italy currently is the third country for highest presence of Muslims in EU, about 2.7 million (which one million with Italian citizenship), representing the 4,5% of the whole population in the Country. Nevertheless, in comparison with other European countries that have experienced Muslim migration since after the second world, migration flows from Islamic countries into Italy are more recent, starting from the 80s, characterized by a male presence in search of work, coming first from the Arab countries and in a second phase, in the 90s from those in Asia and Europe (Balkans mostly). Today, the Islamic community is quite varied in ethnic composition, number of languages and cultures. The most prominent Muslims foreign group are the ones from Morocco (400.000 members), Albania (202.000), Bengal (112.000), Pakistan (108.000), Egypt (102.000), Senegal (93.000), Tunisia (92.000) (Tacchini, 2020).In addition, the Italian Muslims is a category that include foreigners who took the citizenship, sons and daughters born in Italy by Muslims couples where at least one of the parents was an Italian citizen and a small part of Italians converted to Islam (Ciocca, 2019). Considering this demographic frame, this paper aims to illustrate how Muslim identity in Italy is perceived at institutional level and public opinion, and, and the same time, how Muslims feels about themselves living in the Country.
