There are approximately 75,000-115,000 Hindus in Italy. Unione Induista Italia (UII), (Italian Hindu Union) exists in Italy led by Swami Yogananda Giri.

Hindus are pressing for official recognition in Italy. UII has signed in 2007 an Intente with the Italian government. The document was then waiting for approval by the Italian Parliament. Hinduism was granted official recognition by the Italian Parliament in 2012 alongside Buddhism.[1]

The Hindu organization, ISKCON, also has extensive presence in Italy.
