Modification on recognition by the government[edit]

I modified the introduction a little, adding the procedure that a religion needs to follow to be recognized as official. The whole paragraph was incomplete without it. I also removed a source that was given as a reference for the 8 per thousand regulations, but that was pretty insignificant in that position: http://www.csmonitor.com/2003/1110/p07s01-woeu.html. Personally I don't see it as a relevant one, but I put it in the talk section as possibly it was just misplaced and somebody would still like to use it somewhere else. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Raggot (talkcontribs) 13:31, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Old translation request (from the German Wikipedia)[edit]

Edited: History section; a direct translation from the German version of this page. Jojo atze 18:52, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey thanks! I requested that translation aeons ago and had come to the conclusion that there were no editors both fluent in German and sufficiently interested in and knowledgable about the topic to want to do such a long translation. Splendid work, the article is improved out of recognition. —Ian Spackman 01:08, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

I have listed this page for cleanup. I think there are several problems with the used of biased wording, weasel terms and irrelevant information.

In the second paragraph, it is stated that "There is a perception among some that this constant wave of arrivals is placing the nation under siege, the foreign customs and practices of these people is alien to many who have lived their entire lives in an almost homogenous Italo-Catholic environment". No alternative perspective or critisism of this point of view is offered. Also, the use of the word "success" in intercepting immigrants might be regarded as a point-of-view statement.

The argumentative nature of the last paragraph is rather unencyclopedic. It seems like the author is trying to make a point, using some rather biased wording ("stirring", "a vocal few"). Again, no opposing perspective is offered. The very last sentence, "It is common in Muslim-majority countries to find arrow-signs in hotel rooms indicating the direction of Mecca and is not made an issue of by non-Muslims" has nothing to do with the subject of the article, unless the argument is attributed to a cited Italian source. / Alarm 12:00, 30 Jan 2005 (UTC)

According to Amari, the well -respected 19th C. Italian historian, any town in Sicily in which the Muslims found resistance, the inhabitants were slaughtered with the children and women being sold as slaves and the fighting men massacred(See the massacre especially at Syracuse, Palermo among other towns). Many churches were turned into Mosques throughout Sicily (fact of History. Read The Blue Guide and many Travel books including Touring Club of Italy's Sicily guide.) This fact was omitted. However it was mentioned that Mosques were turned in to churches. They were Christian Churches first. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.18.168.61 (talk) 19:51, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Change of statistics[edit]

A number of figures in this article has been changed. Could someone please provide a reference for the statistics given? / Alarm 19:07, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I changed "the Prophet Muhammad" to "the Muslim Prophet Muhammad" since his prophethood is a religious point of view.

  • Italian exports and Islam in Italy all smell like copyvios but I can't tell where from. They were all put up by User:82.43.213.217, and share the same writing style. Dave6 05:44, 9 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • No copyvio notices on these articles. -- Infrogmation 14:21, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)
    • I agree that these are almost certainly copyright violations, although they might be school papers this guy wrote. I can't find the sources either. – Quadell (talk) (sleuth) 15:55, Mar 31, 2005 (UTC)

Muslim Sources[edit]

Muslims dont come from Algeria in Italy. I dont know who wrote that. I am going to ISTAT as a source instead! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.150.154.247 (talk) 21:51, 24 November 2007 (UTC)


map needed[edit]

there is a need for a map showing the cities mentioned in the article clearly. --81.159.154.104 (talk) 16:03, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

=number of Muslim citizens[edit]

the last edit mentioned that 50,000 Muslims have Italian citizenship

This is most surely inaccurate (it's a gross underestimation, in my view). The person who inserted it should produce a reliable source for his data. In the meantime, it should stay out. Giordaano (talk) 10:19, 11 March 2010 (UTC)


This is, frankly speaking, a very poor article, written in DIY English. A native English-speaker should at least revise it linguistically Giordaano (talk) 13:50, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

please, don't edit the talk page[edit]

the talk page is there for discussion. If you disagree with someone, discuss. ThanksGiordaano (talk) 12:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
