Mosque building scar - The possibility to build mosques or to use already existing buildings as places for the cult of Muslim still turn out a problem without solution in Italy. Without an agreement between the State and the Muslim communities, the matter is remitted to the local institutions that often do not give the authorizations for bureaucratic quibbles, but in reality in order not to have to face the protests of the local population, bewildered and alarmed. The bill in parliament that we illustrate here, proposed by a political party that has made of the fear towards the strangers one of its warhorses, reveals, above all in the premise, a vision distorted and instrumental of the Islamic religion from which a number of dispositions derive that treat the mosques as unhealthy and threatening places to isolate: instead of establishing rules finalized to guarantee a fundamental right in harmonious form in the territory is strengthened the idea of two worlds strangers and parallels that must remain separate and distant.

Keywords mosques, Islam, places of cult, social rights, integration.
