Recognition of religion or belief in Italy

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Italian Republic are classified apathetic.

Recognition of religion or belief in Italy


  • The Catholic Church has state privilege; there are currently no procedures for a religious group to attain the same level of existential recognition as Catholicism in Italy causing a situation of partial recognition.

  • Bilateral cooperation agreements manage state relations with religious entities.

  • The process for establishing an accord is highly political by nature, firstly dependent upon the prime minister’s approval and then parliament’s; this politicisation of the process is not ideal.

Positive elements:

  • Nil.


  • Establish a recognition agency to manage religious recognition independent of government.
